    Hydrologic responses to Pleistocene climate change within a deep vadose zone in the eastern Mojave Desert at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, were evaluated by uranium-series dating of finely layered. A km-long cross drift across the potential repository block was completed in April (Fulcher et al., ) to provide direct access to the rock units in which emplacement drifts may be constructed for the potential high-level radioactive waste repository at Yucca Mountain, siyamiozkan.com samples from drill holes in the cross drift were analyzed for major and trace elements to characterize Cited by:

    Abstract Yucca Mountain, located in southern Nevada in the Mojave Desert, is being considered as a geologic repository for high-level radioactive waste. Although the site is arid, previous studies indicate net infiltration rates of mm yr-1 under current climate conditions. Unsaturated flow of water through the mountain generally is. Unadjusted ages of ground‐water samples indicate that most recharge in the Yucca Mountain and Amargosa Desert areas of southern Nevada may have occurred between 18, Cited by:

    The overall conclusion is that recurrent low-temperature hydrothermal (epithermal) activity occurred at Yucca Mountain in the geologically recent past (from ca. 8–10 Ma to as recently as 25 ka). New data require the currently-accepted concept of the hydrogeological system Cited by: 7. The California State Water Project (SWP) is one of the largest water development projects in US. The Project was designed to transfer BCM from the northern Sacramento River basin to areas of need in central and Southern regions of the State.

The unsaturated zone at Yucca Mountain was investigated as a possible site for the nation's first high-level nuclear waste repository. Scientific investigations included infiltration studies, matrix properties testing, borehole testing and monitoring, underground excavation and testing, and the development of conceptual and numerical models of the hydrologic processes at Yucca Mountain.
