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 ...
Hydrology of the southern part of the Peavine Mountain-Silver Lake sub-basin
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1987)
A study was conducted to determine the feasibility of harvesting runoff form Peavine Mountain prior to its discharge and evaporation from the Silver Lake Playa. Model routing indicates 200 acre-feet per year can be harvested.
Environmental isotope hydrology of the Dixie Valley geothermal system, Dixie Valley, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1982)
Stable isotopic samples were analyzed from rain, snow, springs, irrigation wells, and two deep geothermal wells. The stable isotopic analysis indicate that meteoric water from the mountains surrounding Dixie Valley continually ...
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.
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 ...
Hydrogeology of Dodge Flat and its relation to flow and quality changes in the Truckee River
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1980)
A detailed study of the hydrogeology of the Dodge Flat hydrographic basin was initiated to attempt to explain the flow and quality changes in the lower Truckee River. Groundwater from the Fernley area entering the Truckee ...
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.
Assessment of management strategies for drought mitigation through a conjunctive use irrigation system in Smith Valley, Lyon County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1978)
A lumped parameter systems model was developed for Smith Valley, based upon the characteristics and interrelationships of the water resource system. Various conjunctive management schemes were modeled to investigate improving ...
Numerical simulation of gas flow through unsaturated fractured rock at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1990)
Numerical analysis is used to identify the physical phenomena associated with barometrically driven gas flow through unsaturated fractured rock at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.
Sorption of cesium and strontium by arid region desert soil
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1984)
The sorption and ion exchange properties of nonradioactive cesium and strontium were studied in this investigation. Ion exchange studies have shown that the studied soil sorbs cesium preferentially relative to strontium, ...
