Rainfall and Net Infiltration Probabilities for Future Climate Conditions at Yucca Mountain
Performance assessment of repository integrity is a task rendered difficult because it requires predicting the future. This challenge has occupied many scientists who realize that the...

Photogeologic Reconnaissance of X-Tunnel at Little Skull Mountain
An underground structure known as X-tunnel was investigated for the viability as an underground deep based missile system that included the capability to maintain survivability following...

Science Education Beyond the Classroom
The Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project (YMP) sponsors a variety of classroom-oriented projects and activities for teachers who request them. Also available, though, are extra-curricular...

The Sellafield Repository Project as Seen by the Public—A Comparison of Research Techniques
To see one's organisation through the eyes of others, to monitor that view and to amend it if necessary, is the primary role of the public relations and public affairs function in an establishment....

The Nagra-DOE Cooperative Project
Tne Nagra-DOE Cooperative (NDC-I) research program was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL), and the Swiss Nationale Genossenschaft...

Simulation of Fracture Flow to the Kamaishi Validation Drift
The Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC) has developed an in-situ test facility in the Kamaishi Mine to resolve technical issues in disposal of radioactive wastes...

Mission Analysis of the Exploratory Studies Facility
The mission of the Exploratory Studies Facility (ESF), as interpreted from the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, can be stated succinctly as, ...to conduct subsurface exploration and testing,...

Using QA Classification to Guide Design and Manage Risk
Raytheon Services Nevada has developed a classification process based on probabilistic risk assessment, using accident/impact scenarios for each system classified. Initial classification...

Structural Character of the Ghost Dance Fault, Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Detailed structural mapping of an area that straddles the southern part of the Ghost Dance Fault has revealed the presence of several additional subparallel to anastomosing faults. These...

Geohydrologic Data and Models of Rainier Mesa and Their Implications to Yucca Mountain
The geohydrologic data collected at Rainier Mesa provide the only extensive observations in tunnels presently available on flow and transport in tuff units similar to those of a potential...

Discontinuities, Rock Deformation and Fluid Flow Around Emplacement Rooms
One of the major concerns for the design of the potential nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain is how to identify the fast flow paths and how to minimize the flow of the fast paths....

Sensitivity and Probabilistic Analyses of Ground Water Travel Time in a Fractured and Variably-Saturated Geologic Medium
This paper presents a method for sensitivity and probabilistic analyses of performance of a hypothetical nuclear waste repository located in a layered, fractured, and variably-saturated...

Analyses of Natural Resources in 10 CFR Part 60 as Related to Inadvertent Human Intrusion
The purpose of this paper is to examine the intent of the regulatory language of the portions of 10 CFR Part 60 which deal with considerations of the natural resources of a proposed geologic...
