This book is a reference of the language elements that you can submit in a SAS session (in batch or from the SAS windowing environment) to use, query, and maintain the SAS Metadata Server. Most of these language elements were already documented in several other books. This book brings them together with new language elements, new features, and expanded conceptual information. New for SAS 9.2!

The rare earth elements (REE) are 15 elements with atomic no. 57 through 71, from lanthanum to lutetium, plus yttrium. Although industrial demand for these elements is relatively small in tonnage terms, they are essential for a diverse and expanding array of high-tech applications. REE-containing magnets, metal alloys for batteries and lightweight structures, and phosphors are essential for many current and emerging alternative energy technologies, such as electric vehicles, energy-efficient lighting, and wind power. REE are also critical for a number of key defense systems. This study provide

In 2002, the Dept. of Defense (DoD) began developing and rapidly fielding a global Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) composed of elements that include radars, interceptors, and command and control systems. These elements are envisioned to be linked together to defend against a broad range of ballistic missile threats. In 2009, DoD began a broad review of missile defense policy and strategy intended to reassess the BMDS and set direction for the future. This report reviewed the extent to which DoD has: (1) identified the types and quantities of elements and interceptors it needs; and (2)

The DoD has spent over $115 billion since the mid-1980s to develop a Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) comprised of land, air, and sea-based elements -- such as missiles and radars -- working together as an integrated system. Since the cost to operate and support a weapon system accounts for most of a systemżs lifetime costs, the resources needed to fund BMDS could be significant as DoD fields an increasing number of BMDS elements. In 2005, DoD began planning to transition responsibility for supporting BMDS elements from the Missile Defense Agency to the services. This report assesses t

Summary The risk assessment approach described in this monograph applies only to essential trace elements (ETEs) involved in human health and not to non-essential elements. The purpose of this monograph is to provide the scientific principles that support the concept of an "acceptable range of oral intake" (AROI), which uses a "homeostatic model" for determining the range of dietary intakes for essential trace elements (ETEs) that meet the nutritional requirements of a healthy population and avoid excess intakes. To facilitate comparisons, AROIs are discussed in relation to other risk assessme

Every 15 years, the Forest Service (FS) develops a land & resource mgmt. plan which spells out how the agency intends to protect the lands & resources that it manages & to provide products & services to the public. This report discusses: the views of the FS & other Fed. agencies on the key elements that Broad-Scale Assessments (BSA) should contain to maximize their value to the forest planning process; the extent to which the FS has incorp. these elements into the Great Lakes Ecol. Assess. & whether it has integrated the BSA into the forest planning process; & the extent to which the FS's prop

Since 2002, the DoD has spent over $80 billion on developing and fielding a Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) comprised of various land-and-sea-based elements employed by multiple combatant commands and services. Since the time available to iontercept a missile is short, integrating training among all org. involved is important to connect seams where commands and elements must work together. This report assessed the exent to which DoD has: (1) developed a plan for integrating BMDS training across and among commands and multiple elements, and identified training roles, responsibilities, a
