Estimation of hydraulic heads with constraints on head gradients across no flow boundaries and their effect on transmissivities estimated from inverse modelling
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1994)
Techniques to estimate semivariogram parameters were investigated. These techniques are applied to the determination of semivariogram parameters used in the estimation of hydraulic head values at node locations from measured ...
Geology of the Desert Peak geothermal anomaly, Churchill County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1979)
Field mapping in the northern Hot Springs Mountains, Churchill County, Nevada, indicates that the intersection of Basin and Range faults with an earlier fault zone corresponds with the location of the Desert Peak Geothermal ...
A finite-difference, inverse groundwater flow model of Pahute Mesa, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1994)
A finite-difference inverse groundwater flow model was developed for Pahute Mesa located in Nye County, Nevada. The model results appear to support the existence of a hydraulic barrier at Pahute Mesa.
Rare earth elements in terrestrial waters: speciation modelling in acidic to alkaline waters
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1993)
Three manuscripts are presented describing the rare earth element (REE) concentrations and behavior in terrestrial waters. These studies suggest that the pH, rock geochemistry, and the formation of stable REE complexes ...
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.
Aquifer storage characteristics of Paleozoic carbonate rocks in southeastern Nevada estimated from harmonic analysis of water-level fluctuations
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1992)
One- and three-dimensional theories of aquifer dilation due to earth tides are reviewed to determine aquifer storage characteristics. Water-level records for eleven wells and one open fault that penetrate the aquifers and ...
Delineation of subsurface flow in the Upper Meadow Valley Wash area, southeastern Nevada
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1986)
Results of simple mixing calculations suggest that sources of regional flow lie to the north of the study area in Lake Valley and Patterson Wash. Substantial interbasin transfer does not appear likely.
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.
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. ...
Water transport in desert alluvial soil
(University of Nevada, Reno, 1981)
Water transport in desert alluvial soil was studied. The influence of heat flow in soils and vapor transport was investigated in addition to saturated and unsaturated transport. The hydraulic conductivity and infiltrations ...
