Reasons: The instrument will be used to study the response of soils under monotonic static loading compared to 1–D and 2–D cyclic loading, evaluate the influence of load amplitude and frequency content on the response of soils in terms of shear modulus and damping versus strain, and evaluate the influence of soil-content on its dynamic properties. It is critical to have the capability to simulate realistic static and dynamic stress conditions to the soil samples, which is facilitated by the instrument. The key specification in the research that was satisfied by the instrument is the ability to apply cyclic loading at high frequencies (up to about 30Hz) to simulate earthquake loading. The instrument is also capable of testing soil samples larger than 70mm, the pressure system/pressure controller has a resolution of 0.1 KPa which provides greater accuracy, and the load frame capacity for both static and dynamic loading is 25 KN.

ACTION: Notice; withdrawal of an incidental take authorization application. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 Notice is hereby given that the National Ocean Service’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary (GFNMS) has withdrawn its application for an Incidental Harassment Authorization (IHA). The following action is in relation to a proposed IHA to GFNMS for the take of small numbers of marine mammals, by harassment, incidental to rocky intertidal monitoring work and searching for black abalone, components of the Sanctuary Ecosystem Assessment Surveys. SUMMARY: A copy of the application, which contains several attachments, including COP’s marine mammal mitigation and monitoring plan and Plan of Cooperation, can be viewed on the internet at: http:// www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/permits/ incidental.htm. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Candace Nachman, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, (301) 427–8401. On September 12, 2013, NMFS received an application from GFNMS for the taking of marine mammals incidental to rocky intertidal monitoring work and searching for black abalone. NMFS determined that the application was adequate and complete on November 14, 2013. The requested IHA was for an authorization to take, by Level B harassment, small numbers of five species of marine mammals incidental to GFNMS’ rocky intertidal monitoring work and the search for black abalone in areas previously unexplored for black abalone from January 25 through February 1, 2014. NMFS published a Notice of Proposed IHA, initiating a 30day public comment period, on November 27, 2013 (78 FR 70921). On January 14, 2014, NMFS accepted notice from GFNMS withdrawing their IHA application for the proposed action. The trip was cancelled due to a lack of funding. Therefore, NMFS did not issue an IHA for the proposed specified activity. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Donna S. Wieting, Director, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.
