Sources of nitrate in northwestern Nevada groundwater, 1985-2014 of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Hydrogeology
Groundwater data from across northwestern Nevada was compiled to determine variables that affect nitrate concentrations in the region. Variables used in this study that may influence increased nitrate concentrations include ...
Estimation of annual Groundwater Evapotranspiration from Phreatophyte Vegetation in the Great Basin using Remotely Sensed Vegetation Indices and Ground Based Flux Tower Measurements
Escalating concerns about the future of water resource management in arid regions of the American Southwest have sparked numerous hydrologic studies looking into available water resources for in-basin and inter-basin ...
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 ...
Relationships between streamflow and groundwater in Humboldt River Valley near Winnemucca, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1969)
The physical and hydrologic relationships between the Humboldt River and the groundwater reservoir are examined in this study for the reach of river between Comus and Rose Creek gaging stations.
Water chemistry reconnaissance geochemical modeling in the Meadow Valley Wash area, southern Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1987)
The study area groundwater system encompasses Coyote Springs, Kane Springs, Moapa and Meadow Valleys. The geology is dominated by Paleozoic carbonates to the north, and younger alluvium and lacustrine deposits to the south. ...
Some aspects of the hydrogeology of the Spring Mountains and Pahrump Valley, Nevada, and environs, as determined by spring evaluation
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1966)
The hydrogeology of the Spring Mountains and Pahrump Valley, Nevada has been evaluated. Analysis of geology indicates that nearly all springs are controlled by impermeable fault contacts or exposure of cavernous systems.
Aquifer storage characteristics of Paleozoic carbonate rocks in southeastern Nevada estimated from harmonic analysis of water-level fluctuations
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1992)
One- and three-dimensional theories of aquifer dilation due to earth tides are reviewed to determine aquifer storage characteristics. Water-level records for eleven wells and one open fault that penetrate the aquifers and ...
Characterization of colloids found in various groundwater environments in central and southern Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1989)
Colloid concentration and composition were determined and compared for twenty-three groundwater samples collected in central and southern Nevada.
Analysis of the White River groundwater flow system using a deuterium-calibrated discrete-state compartment model
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1987)
The White River Flow System can be delineated with a discrete-state compartment model using environmental isotope (deuterium) data.
Delineation of ground-water flow systems in Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1968)
Available hydrologic and geologic information has been considered with flow system theory in an attempt to delineate groundwater flow systems in Nevada. Definition of sink areas, source areas, and configuration of flow ...
