Introduction to Composite Art includes exposing students to all aspects of getting a composite art unit started, the tools of the trade, interview techniques specific to the skill, and emphasizes the transition of selected reference images by a victim or witness into a composite image with a heightened degree of effectiveness. 40 hours of training in all.
Scientific research at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Ames Laboratory continues to garner high marks. The just released FY2012 DOE Laboratory Performance Report Card awards Ames Lab an A- for Mission Accomplishments (Science and Technology), a key performance measurement area. This high grade reflects a continuance of the same high standard of excellence achieved in this area in 2011.
