The geochemistry of groundwater and sediments governing tungsten concentration in the basin-fill aquifers, Fallon, Nevada
The wide range of tungsten (W) concentrations (&sim0.7-700 ppb) in the groundwater of Fallon, Nevada, initiated an investigation to understand the geochemical cycle of W in the basin-fill aquifer. Tungsten in the groundwater ...
Hydrogeologic Controls on Groundwater Quality in the West Mamprusi Area, Northern Ghana
In the Northern Region of Ghana where groundwater is scarce and borehole success rates are low, there are still large gaps in groundwater quality research. Generally, groundwater is a safer source of drinking water than ...
Inter-Code Comparison of Variably Saturated Fluid Flow and Prediction of Percolation through a Tailings Impoundment in Southeast Nevada, USA.
Hypothetical infiltration columns were simulated to evaluate the performance of 6 different modeling codes (HYDRUS 1D, HYDRUS 2D/3D, HELP, SV FLUX, UNSAT-H, and VS2D) at simulating near ground surface water balance processes ...
Using an Integrated Model to Assess Groundwater Recharge in Martis Valley, CA
Groundwater contributes an essential water supply to several communities and ecosystems in the Truckee River Basin. Water resource investigations were conducted through numerical modeling and comparisons to previous work ...
Influence of watershed characteristics on water quality behavior of streams in the eastern Sierra Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1976)
Quantitative relationships between water quality behavior and physical characteristics of corresponding watersheds were investigated in the eastern Sierra Nevada.
Environmental controls on occurrence and chemistry of ground water in a basic volcanic terrane, eastern Sierra Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1970)
Primary controls of the occurrence and chemistry of groundwater in the eastern Sierra Nevada include geology, mineralogy, physical properties of soils and rocks, and climatic factors.
Hydrogeochemistry of Golden Valley, Nevada and the chemical interactions during artificial recharge
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
Groundwater chemistry in Golden Valley is controlled primarily by aquifer lithology. Additionally, clogging near the well-screen by precipitated minerals is the greatest threat to well efficiencies during artificial recharge ...
Chemical hydrogeology of the carbonate peninsulas of Florida and Yucatan
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1969)
The hydrologic and geochemical systems in Florida and the Yucatan peninsulas are examined and compared.
Delineation of the Railroad Valley flow system using a deuterium- calibrated groundwater model
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1988)
This diverse structural zone between the Sierra Nevada and Walker Lane could be caused by a clockwise rotation of the Sierra Nevada Range about its northern axis.
A two-dimensional simulation of tritium transport in the vadose zone at the Nevada Test Site
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
