Prototype Testing for the Yucca Mountain Project
The U.S. Department of Energy, through its Yucca Mountain Project Office (YMPO), has been conducting prototype activities in welded and non-welded tuff. These activities are in preparation...

Reconnaissance δ ¹³C and δ¹8O Data from Trench 14, Busted Butte, and Drill Hole G-4, Yucca Mountain, Nevada Test Site
Trench 14 was excavated to investigate the extent of Quaternary movement on the Bow Ridge fault, a north-south structure on the east side of Yucca Mountain. The trench exposes calcite...

Probable Maximum Floods at the Yucca Mountain Exploratory Shafts
This paper presents an analysis of flood flows in the Coyote Wash at the proposed high level nuclear waste repository site at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Estimates of the hydrographs at various...

Multi-Dimensional Modeling of Unsaturated Flow in the Vicinity of Exploratory Shafts and Fault Zones at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Modeling studies were conducted to determine the potential effects of exploratory shafts on moisture distribution in the vicinity of an exploratory shaft facility, and the potential for...
