    Infiltration Abstractions for Shallow Soil Over Fractured Bedrock in a Semiarid Climate Stuart A. Stothoff Stothoff Environmental Modeling La Rue Street Houston, TX 19, USA Abstract Deep percolation of water is consistently identified as critical to the performance of the proposed repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. In turn. Situated some 90 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada Yucca Mountain is currently the only site that has been studied in detail for geological disposal of spent nuclear fuel and defense high-level waste. There are ten (10) designated Affected Units of Local Governments (AULG's) in relative proximity to Yucca Mountain. These AULG's have been granted authority to provide information and public.

    The model was developed in studies at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, which is located in the approximate center of the Death Valley ground-water flow system. The conceptual model describes the effects of precipitation, runoff, evapotranspiration, and redistribution of water in the shallow unsaturated zone on predicted rates of net infiltration. studies at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, which is located in the approximate center of the Death Valley ground-water flow system.

Get this from a library. Shallow infiltration processes at Yucca Mountain, Nevada: neutron logging data [Lorraine E Flint; Alan L Flint; United States. Department of Energy. Nevada Operations Office.; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. To determine site suitability of Yucca Mountain, Nevada, as a potential high-level radioactive waste repository, a study was devised to characterize Shallow infiltration processes at Yucca Mountain infiltration.

This study involves a detailed data set produced from 99 neutron boreholes that consisted of volumetric water-content readings with depth from through at Yucca by: Shallow infiltration processes at Yucca Mountain, Nevada: Neutron logging data Technical Report Flint, L E ; Flint, A L To determine site suitability of Yucca Mountain, Nevada, as a potential high-level radioactive waste repository, a study was devised to characterize net infiltration.

The unsaturated zone at Yucca Mountain was investigated as a possible site for the nation's first high-level nuclear waste repository. Scientific investigations included infiltration studies, matrix properties testing, borehole testing and monitoring, underground excavation and testing, and the development of conceptual and numerical models of the hydrologic processes at Yucca Mountain.

Water-balance processes were characterized to estimate net infiltration at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, to help determine the suitability of this site as a potential high-level radioactive waste repository. Detailed water-content data were collected from 98 boreholes located in four topographic positions (ridgetops, sideslopes, albvial terraces, and active channels) representing four infiltration Cited by: 7.

The Infiltration Tabulator for Yucca Mountain (ITYM) program estimates the net amount of water infiltrating from the ground surface into shallow bedrock at Yucca Mountain as a function of climate.

– Mean annual infiltration above the high-level waste repository proposed to be sited at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, has a large impact on assessments of repository performance. Ongoing investigations of infiltration processes have identified the relatively horizontal caprock environment above portions of the repository as a potentially large source of infiltrating waters, due to shallow, permeable.

This information has been incorporated into pro- cess and site-scale numerical models of Yucca Mountain. Yucca Mountain is a mountain in Nevada, near its border with California, approximately miles ( km) northwest of Las d in the Great Basin, Yucca Mountain is east of the Amargosa Desert, south of the Nevada Test and Training Range and in the Nevada National Security is the site of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, which is currently identified by.

A conceptual model of shallow infiltration processes at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, was developed for use in hydrologic flow models to characterize net infiltration (the penetration of the wetting front below the zone influenced by evapotranspiration).

The model categorizes the surface of the site into four infiltration zones. Shallow Infiltration Processes at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

The site is located on federal land adjacent to the Nevada Test Site in Nye County, Nevada, about 80 mi ( km. Obtaining values of net infiltration, groundwater travel time, and recharge is necessary at the Yucca Mountain site, Nevada, USA, in order to evaluate the expected performance of a potential.
