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 ...
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 ...
Spatial and Temporal Variation of Dissolved Arsenic Concentrations in the Intermediate Aquifer of the Lahontan Valley, Nevada
A study was conducted in the intermediate-depth alluvial aquifer (50-500 ft) of Lahontan Valley, Nevada, to determine if there is temporal and spatial stability of dissolved arsenic concentrations, and if chemical mechanisms ...
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.
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.
An LP embedded simulation model for conjunctive use management optimization
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1983)
Equations for groundwater flow and surface water continuity have been embedded in a linear programming hydraulic management model. The embedding method is useful for small problems over a limited number of time steps, but ...
Numerical simulation of artificial recharge in Cold Spring Valley, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1981)
A steady-state, finite element model was used to simulate the Cold Spring Valley groundwater flow system. The primary limiting factor to any artificial recharge scenario in Cold Spring Valley is the response of the water ...
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.
