1. Rodriguez, Paul. Challenges of permitting ballast water discharges from commercial vessels in U.S. waters.

Degree: MSin Environmental Engineering - (M.S.), Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2012, New Jersey Institute of Technology

On February 5, 2009, the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) issued the Vessel General Permit (VGP), under the Clean Water Act (CWA), for discharges incidental to the normal operation of vessels, including ballast water discharges. This set forth permit requirements for most commercial vessel discharges within 3 nautical miles of U.S. shore. Since it will expire in December 2013, the US EPA recently issued a draft 2013 VGP. One of the significant changes is the proposal of numerical ballast water discharge standards requiring most commercial vessels to install ballast water treatment systems onboard. The objective of this thesis is to review, analyze and present the impacts of the VGP ballast water regulations. An overview of the concerns of ballast water discharge, the VGP and other related ballast water regulations, and classes of vessels affected is exhibited. Using the US EPA VGP Notice of Intent (NOI) database, this study presents the challenges of the upcoming 2013 VGP ballast water regulations. The challenges discussed are organized into five aspects: ballast water treatment system (BWTS) manufacturers, vessels requiring BWTSs, impact on foreign and domestic vessels, additional state regulations, and government agencies’ involvement. Finally, conclusions and recommendations are made with regard to such challenges. Advisors/Committee Members: Hsin Neng Hsieh, Taha F. Marhaba, Michael P. Bonchonsky.

2. Fent, Andrew Thomas. The Effect of Action Video Game Play on the Distribution and Resolution of Visuospatial Attention.

Degree: MS, Human Factors and Industrial/Organizational Psychology MS, 2017, Wright State University

Previous research has found that Video Game Players, or VGPs, perform better on a variety of attention tasks (i.e. attentional blink, useful field of view, flanker compatibility, etc.) as compared to Non-Video Game Players, or NVGPs. We examined the extent of this previously observed VGP attentional advantage on a target identification task. Most VGP studies have examined the VGP advantage on tasks that primarily require detection but not identification. Identification is an important process beyond detection for encoding and later retrieving information. VGPs and NVGPs were tested on briefly flashed strings of digits subtending less than 10 degrees of visual angle. They were tasked with identifying a target among distractors. Some of the strings were visually crowded and others were spaced such that crowding was not present. Our results indicated that the previously observed VGP attentional advantages do not extend to an identification task. VGPs and NVGPs performed similarly on all conditions of number of digits and spacing. One previous study indicated that VGPs had a lower crowding threshold than NVGPs even at 0 degrees of visual angle. We did not find that this reduction in crowding threshold allowed for better performance on an identification task. Future research is needed to fully investigate whether VGPs are able to perform with better accuracy than NVGPs on identification or a similar task. Advisors/Committee Members: Watamaniuk, Scott (Advisor).
