International Compendium of Numerical Data Projects: A by CODATA (The Committee on Data for Science and Technology

By CODATA (The Committee on Data for Science and Technology ofthe International Council of Scientific Unions)

At the time of its institution in 1966, through the foreign Council of clinical Unions (ICSU), the Committee on information for technology and Technol­ ogy (CODATA) was once given the elemental challenge of selling and inspiring, on a global foundation, the creation and distribution of compendia and of collections of significantly chosen numerical info on components other kinds of curiosity and significance to technological know-how and know-how. to complete this objective, the next projects have been assigned to CODATA: (1) to envision, on a world foundation, what paintings on compilation of numerical information is being carried on in every one kingdom and less than every one union, and from this data, to organize and distribute a listing or Com­ pendium of the Data-Compiling tasks and similar guides of the realm; (2) to accomplish coordination of current courses and to suggest new courses; (3) To motivate, from all acceptable resources, monetary aid for paintings on compilation; (4) To motivate using the world over authorized symbols, devices, constants, terminology, and nomenclature; (5) To inspire and coordinate examine on new equipment for getting ready and disseminating info for technology and expertise. In its first years of operation, 1966 to 1968, in Washington, D. c. , U. S. A. , CODATA thankfully had as its Director Dr. man WADDINGTON, who was once additionally Director of the workplace of severe Tables of the nationwide examine Council (NRC), U. S. A. Dr.

These two tables are selective and critical; however, a complete list of references is included so that all available data may be located. Use of the tables, the properties included, symbols and nomenclature, degree of certainty, and some experimental methods are well covered in the introduction. A seven level information-rating system is used for evaluation of how well each radioisotope has been identified. The fundamental and derived constants listed in Appendix I are those accepted by recognized international bodies.
