LETTERS Ocean thermal Dear Sir: I was pleased to read the article about OTEC ( E S & T, July 1977, p 651). It is time that this significant technology gets the attention it deserves. I especially loved the last sentence about the “glaring omission” in the President’s budget. I would like to point out one important thing that you missed. The best O T E C plant is not the one of T R W , APL or Lockheed. It is the design of Sea Solar Power, Inc.; 2422 S. Queen St., York, Pa. 17402. This area subject is embroiled in controversy largely because the aerospace ripoff artists have been trying to force the acceptance of their inferior designs by the Department of Energy, and have been succeeding. Also, Alfa DeLaval has started their own privately funded O T E C project which is

headed by William Heronemus. (Energy Systems Division; 730 West St., Amherst, Mass.). David F. Mayer University of New Orleans New Orleans, La. 70122

Occupational health Dear Sir: The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) invites research and demonstration grant applications designed to promote occupational safety and health. Innovative approaches designed to define occupational safety and health problems and recommend solutions, understand and prevent occupational disease and accidents, and eliminate or control hazards are welcome. At this time, primary emphasis is placed on investigations related to cause and prevention of occupational skin, neurologic, respiratory, and musculoskeletal and back disorders; reproductive effects of occupational hazards; occupational safety; and control technology for occupational hazards. In addition, other emphasis areas include, but are not restricted to, OC-

cupational safety- and health-related behavioral and motivational factors, epidGmiology, ergonomics, physiology, toxicology, pathology, effects of physical agents, head and body protection, biological and environmental sampling and analysis, and the development of physical and chemical analytical methods. Applications should be submitted on N I H Form 398 to the Division of Research Grants, National Institutes of Health, Westwood Building, Bethesda, M D 20014. For further information please contact: C. Ilana Howarth Research Grants Program Officer Grants Administrative and Review Branch, OECSP National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Parklawn Bldg., Room 8-63 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Md. 20857 Telephone: (301) 443-4493 C.
