Geometric Analyses of Alternative Models of Faulting at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Realistic cross section tectonic models must be retrodeformable to geologically reasonable pre-deformation states. Furthermore, it must be shown that geologic structures depicted on cross...

Detachment Faults—Regulatory Implications for the Yucca Mountain Site
Site characterization investigations at the Yucca Mountain site, Nye County, Nevada consist of a combination of scientific data collection and analyses, and compliance with regulatory...

Seismic Reflection Profiling: Essential Geophysical Data for Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Yucca Mountain, Nevada, consists of a thick sequence of ashflow tuffs and lavas fractured into intact blocks with east-dipping strata, marginal broken zones characterized by dense faulting...

Calcite Deposits in Fractures at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Calcite is one of the latest-formed minerals within fractures at Yucca Mountain. Petrographic and chemical studies of these calcites have the potential, in conjunction with fluid-inclusion...

Isotopic and Trace Element Variability in Altered and Unaltered Tuffs at Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Reference stratigraphic sections near Yucca Mountain, Nevada were established and sampled in outcrop areas where the volcanic rocks have been minimally altered. Isotopic and trace element...

Lead Isotopic Composition of Paleozoic and Late Proterozoic Marine Carbonate Rocks in the Vicinity of Yucca Mountain, Nevada
Paleozoic and Late Proterozoic marine carbonate rocks (limestones, dolomites, and their metamorphic equivalents) cropping out in the vicinity of Yucca Mountain contain lead with an isotopic...

Application of the Global Positioning System to Locating Remote Sites
The location of Near Field (NF) sampling stations, used for the radiological monitoring program portion of the site characterization phase of the Yucca Mountain Project, were determined...

Ambient Air Monitoring to Support HLW Repository Site Characterization
This paper is a description of the program that has been operating in support of the Yucca Mountain site site characterization activities since 1985.The ambient air monitoring is designed...

Small-Scale Behavior of Single Gravity-Driven Fingers in an Initially Dry Fracture
Experiments investigating the behavior of individual, gravity-driven fingers in an initially dry, rough-walled analog fracture are presented. Fingers were initiated from constant flow...

Simulating the Behavior of Natural Geological Systems: Sources of Uncertainty and Bias
Post-closure performance assessments are used, in conjunction with controlled laboratory experiments and observations on natural systems, to generate confidence that a radioactive waste...

Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project Exploratory Studies Facilities Construction Status
This paper discusses the progress to date on the construction planning and development of the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project (YMP) Exploratory Studies Facilities (ESF). The...

Stochastic Modelling of Groundwater Flow at the WIPP Site
A stochastic approach to modelling the groundwater flow in the vicinity of the WIPP site in New Mexico is described. A geostatistical model of the transmissivity of the Culebra dolomite...

Functional Analysis: The Path to Effective Training
The regulatory requirements under which the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project (YMP) operates mandate that worker proficiency be achieved and maintained. Individuals performing...

Geological Characterization of Selected Offshore Sand Resources on the OCS, Offshore Alabama, for Beach Nourishment
Most Alabama Gulf and estuarine shoreline is undergoing long-term erosion; threatened shorelines will need programs of replenishment and maintenance if they are to be even temporarily...

The Shaping of the French-Belgian North Sea Coast Throughout Recent Geology and History
The present-day French-Belgian North Sea coastal barrier and coastal plain were shaped after the last Ice Age, when especially between 10,000 and 5,000 years ago the global sea level underwent...

The Fraser River Delta, British Columbia: Architecture, Geological Dynamics and Human Impact
The Fraser river delta is the largest delta in western Canada. It is an important coastal ecosystem and an area of explosive urban and industrial growth lying within the most seismically...

Nitrate Contamination of an Alluvial Aquifer Resulting from Irrigation and Geologic Control
A nitrate sampling program was conducted in the vicinity of a rural municipality to determine the source of nitrate contamination of the municipal groundwater supply. A finite-difference...

Bridge Scour Analysis in New Jersey: Which Scour Factors Matter Most?
This paper seeks to correlate the scour susceptibility of bridges with such observable characteristics as bridge design features, waterway characteristics, and geographic and geologic...

Structural and Non-Structural Debris-Flow Countermeasures
Debris-flow can potentially occur for almost any torrents whose gradient is steeper than a given critical value and the frequency at which the debris-flow occurs depends on geological...
