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 ...
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.
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 ...
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.
A new approach for simulating heat transfer and groundwater flow in the Leach Hot Springs hydrothermal system, Pershing County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1988)
The average spring discharge temperature at Leach Hot Springs in southern Grass Valley, Nevada is 76.8° C. Geothermal reservoir temperatures, estimated from silica and Na-K-Ca geothermometers, range from 155 ° to 176 ° C. ...
Examination of water quality and groundwater-surface water interaction during drought periods, Truckee River, California-Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
The water quality and the interaction between ground water and surface water along the Truckee River during drought periods has been examined.
An investigation of the relationship of the physical properties of fine-grained sediments to land subsidence in Las Vegas Valley, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1965)
The response of a complex of valley fill sediments to loading imposed by artesian head decline is in large part controlled by the compressibility of the fine-grained sediments. To evaluate this geological parameter a ...
Time-variant hydrogeologic and geochemical study of selected thermal springs in western Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1985)
Infiltrating waters take -from 24 weeks to less than two weeks to reach the watertables of individual thermal systems, based on temporal variability of physical and chemical parameters. Steamboat and Walley’s hot springs ...
