    The masses of both the neutrino and the Universe are derived from a mutually consistent set of equations in which the neutrino is coupled to the ground state of the Universe. A mass of m/sub v/<10/sup -69/ kg (energy equivalent approximately 10/sup -33/ eV) is found for the neutrino. The equations yield a mass M approximately 10/sup 54/ kg ( approximately 5*10/sup 80/ proton masses) for the Univer... View full abstract»

    The effects of the March 13, 1989, geomagnetic storm, which revealed significant vulnerabilities of electric power systems to this natural widespread phenomenon, are described. This vulnerability appears to be increasing during the 1990s. The economic consequences to the nation of this vulnerability are significant, on the order of several billion dollars for each major outage. It is suggested tha... View full abstract»

    Efforts to monitor the effects of geomagnetically induced currents (GIC) due to solar magnetic disturbances (SMD) in the US are discussed. The efforts began anew after the March 13, 1989 disturbance. Existing and proposed GIC monitoring stations are described, and the monitoring program is briefly summarized. It includes transformer, capacitor, and shunt-reactor monitoring as well as Earth-surface... View full abstract»

    SUNBURST, a monitoring and communication network covering the US and Canada to alert electric utilities to the onset and magnitude of a solar magnetic disturbance (SMD), is discussed. Experience with a system involving data collection and local storage of information from multiple points at a substation, which was developed and field tested as part of a study concerned with the measurement of magn...
