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.
Froth flotation of the Daisy Mine fluorite ores, Nye County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1965)
Batch flotation tests were conducted with samples taken from the Daisy fluorite mine to determine some of the problems facing a future flotation operation. The 8 samples selected for study were those containing fluorite ...
Clogging in artificial ground-water recharge operations
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1967)
When turbid water contains a range of grain sizes, clogging is initiated by the deposition of a surface layer, which is graded due to the gravitational segregation of coarser particles.
The hydrogeochemistry and aqueous uranium distribution of Petersen Mountain and Red Rock Valley, Washoe County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1983)
The chemical characteristics of water from Peterson Mountain and Red Rock Valley result from dissolution and reflect the composition of the Sierra Nevada type crystalline rocks. Background and anomalous uranium limits in ...
Numerical analysis of infiltration and near-surface percolation in relation to Yucca Mountain, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1987)
Infiltration and near-surface percolation in relation to Yucca Mountain were studied. Numerical analysis of infiltration into soil and bedrock at Yucca Mountain was useful in delineating parameter control within the flow system.
Streamflow infiltration and groundwater recharge through the unsaturated zone at Vicee Canyon, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1988)
Streamflow and the unsaturated zone were monitored in Vicee Canyon to calculate groundwater recharge and to estimate the amount of water that would become recharge if the streamflow was augmented.
The geology of radioactive mineral occurrences near Marietta, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1977)
Near Marietta, Nevada, uranium that originally formed in the area in connection with granitic plutonic intrusive rocks, has been exposed to the surface and is being released into the region's hydrologic cycle.
Non-equilibrium thermodynamic treatment of transport processes in ground-water flow
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1975)
The theory of non-equilibrium thermodynamics is postulated to be applicable to a continuum model of porous medium in which fluxes and forces at points in the fluid phase are averaged over a representative elementary volume.
Determination of timing of recharge for geothermal fluids in the Great Basin using environmental isotopes and paleoclimate indicators
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
Research indicates that the fluid source for geothermal system recharge in the Great Basin is paleorecharge.
Characterizing hierarchical heterogeneous porous media using multiscale information
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1994)
A wavelet transform based method of (inverse) modeling large scale non-stationary heterogeneities is developed and examined to provide a better understanding of contaminant dispersion in large scale hydrogeologic problems.
