A stable isotope investigation of nitrate contamination at Many Devils Wash, Shiprock UMTRCA Site, Shiprock, NM
The Navajo Mill was a uranium and vanadium ore processing site located in Shiprock, NM, on a terrace adjacent to the San Juan River. The leaching of ore with ammonium and sulfuric acid introduced large amounts of contaminants ...
Development, Analysis and Use of a Distributed Wireless Sensor Network for Quantifying Spatial Trends of Snow Depth and Snow Water Equivalence Around Meteorological Stations With and Without Snow Sensing Equipment
Snow accumulated in the mountainous portions of the Western United States is an extremely important source of water supply. Federal resource management agencies (USFS, BLM, USGS, NRCS, Federal water master), non-governmental ...
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 ...
An evaluation of inertial effects in a well-aquifer system
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1977)
The effects of fluid inertia in a well-aquifer system were evaluated using an electric analog network and a computerized electrical circuit analysis program.
Chemical variations of the Truckee River from Lake Tahoe to Truckee, California during low flow
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1982)
Data suggests that approximately 30 percent of the base flow in the Truckee River was derived from surface water tributary contribution and 70 percent was groundwater contribution between Tahoe City and Truckee, California. ...
Integrated geochemical and hydraulic analyses of Nevada Test Site ground water systems
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1986)
Major ion, tritium, stable isotope analyses, and radio-carbon age dating have been utilized in conjunction with hydraulic data to study groundwater flow regimes at the Nevada Test Site.
Modeling the transient horizontal movement of an aquifer based on the Gersevanov-Darcy law
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1991)
The velocity of solids, displacement of solids, and volumetric strains related to an aquifer are calculated in response to discharge and injection wells using a numerical model which incorporates the Gersevanov - Darcy law.
Hydrogeology of the Al-Marj Basin, Libya
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1980)
With most of the Al-Marj basin's precipitation lost by evapotranspiration, aquifer overuse provides new problems.
Solute transport in a groundwater system with reversing regional gradients
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1984)
The irreversible nature of solute transport was investigated by posing a hypothetical pollution scenario for Topaz Lake, Nevada and the hydraulically connected alluvial aquifer.
The moisture balance concept as applied to the American River watershed
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1967)
An elevation function developed for moisture balance featured the Thornthwaite formula to check the American River Watershed.
