Mechanical Anisotropy of the Yucca Mountain Tuffs
Three series of measurements were performed on oriented cores of several Yucca Mountain tuffs to determine the importance of mechanical anisotropy in the intact rock. Outcrop and drillhole...

Major Results of Gravity and Magnetic Studies at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
About 4,000 gravity stations have been obtained at Yucca Mountain and vicinity since the beginning of radioactive-waste studies there in 1978. These data have been integrated with data...

Dry Drilling and Coring Development for Unsaturated Zone Studies
Two areas of major difficulty associated with characterization of any unsaturated zone are the conventional drilling and coring processes used to acquire the samples. These processes are...

Radioactive Waste: Finding a Safe Place
The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1981 and its amendments mandate that the U.S. Department of Energy find a repository for the nation's high-level radioactive wastes, characterize...

Pipeline Crossings
This proceedings of the Pipeline Crossings Conference, held on March 25-27, 1991 in Denver, Colorado, presents information on aspects of various pipeline crossings. It covers such broad...

Wave Equation Modelling of the SPT
The stress wave propagation in the Standard Penetration Test (SPT) is described in this paper. It is shown that the SPT is a complex dynamic system and that both force and motion measurements...

Dynamic Testing to Predict Static Performance of Drilled Shafts Results of FHWA Research
The paper describes the preliminary results of recent research sponsored by the FHWA on predicting by relatively economical dynamic methods, the static capacity and performance of drilled...

Oil-Spill Contingency Planning for OCS Operations
Oil-spill preparedness and response have been an important part of the Minerals Management Service (MMS) regulatory program since the Santa Barbara spill in 1969. The focus of the spill...

Targeted Public Outreach
The Minerals Management Service (MMS) has a public affairs program whose goal is to inform the public about the functions of the MMS. An overview of the program is discussed in this article....

Reassessing the 3-Mile State/Federal Boundary
The allocation of state versus federal authority offshore is critical in determining the complexion and pace of OCS oil and gas development. Yet, recurring drilling moratoria indicate...

A Model for Evaluating Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Exploration Plans
The North Carolina OCS Office in consultation with emergency response planning & management (erp&m) developed evaluation matrices for use in evaluating the adequacy and...

OCS Oil and Gas Off South Florida—Developing a Consensus on the Facts
