Immobilizing the Calcined High Level Waste in Glass and Crystalline Phases

Performance of New York's Long-span Bridges
This paper is a work-in-progress report on a database on the performance of long-span bridges located in New York State and built between 1801 and 1993. Of the 68 long-span bridges - bridges...

Disposal of Defense Spent Fuel and HLW from the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant
Acidic high-level radioactive waste (HLW) resulting from fuel reprocessing at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant (ICPP) for the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been solidified to...

Durability Testing of the High-Capacity GA-4/GA-9 Trailer
General Atomics (GA) is under contract to the US Department of Energy (DOE), Idaho Field Office, to develop two legal-weight truck from-reactor spent-fuel shipping casks with trailers....

Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program Strategy for Salmon
Three species of Snake River salmon have been listed as threatened or endangered under the federal Endangered Species Act. In response, the Northwest Power Planning Council worked with...

Mountainous Precipitation Estimation Using Multivariate Statistical Analysis and Geographic Information Systems
Using rotated principal component analysis (PCA), unique, orthogonal spatial patterns of daily and monthly precipitation on a well-instrumented, mountainous watershed in Idaho (USA) were...

Flood Elevation Limits in the Rocky Mountains
An analysis of 77,987 station-years of streamflow-gaging station data from 3,748 stations in the Rocky Mountains indicates that there is a latitude-dependent elevation limit to substantial...

Polyacrylamide Decreases Furrow Erosion
Erosion from furrow irrigated land is a serious problem in southern Idaho and several other areas. Polyacrylamide, a very long chain polymer, increases aggregate stability and flocculates...

Spatial and Temporal Precipitation Characteristics in Southwest Idaho
The USDA-ARS, Northwest Watershed Research Center operates a precipitation gage network on the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed in southwest Idaho. Analysis of the 30-yr (1962-1991)...

Comparing Bowen Ratio-Energy Balance Systems for Measuring ET
Two Bowen ratio-energy balance (BREB) systems for measuring evapotranspiration (ET) under wet and dry conditions were compared. The study sites were an irrigated grass sod near Kimberly,...
