The geomorphic evolution and depositional history of the Carson River delta, Lahontan Reservoir, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1994)
Since completion in 1915, Lahontan Reservoir has impounded water from the Carson and Truckee Rivers and served as a sink for sediments and trace elements including Hg (mercury), Au (gold), and Ag (silver) derived from ...
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.
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.
Origin and distribution of soil nitrates on the Nevada Test Site
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1982)
Unusually high nitrate concentrations were found in soils of Yucca and Frenchman Flats. A maximum concentration of 11,100 mg/kg was found within the 2-6 inch soil depth on Frenchman playa. Maximum nitrate concentrations ...
The formulation and application of a generalized water quality index based on multivariate factor analysis of water quality data from agricultural irrigation return flows
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1978)
A water quality index was developed and used to evaluate the water quality of agricultural irrigation return flows. The index is based on multivariate factor analysis. The geographical applicability of the proposed index ...
Evaluation of factors influencing the inorganic water-quality regimen of Carson River, Carson Valley, Nevada-California
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1977)
Carson River exhibits a significant increase with respect to dissolved solids concentration as it flows through Carson Valley. The increase in dissolved solids is particularly evident during late summer and early fall ...
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 ...
