Achievements Within the International INTRAVAL Project

Development of the San Fernando Basin Groundwater Flow Model
This paper describes the development and calibration of the San Fernando Basin (SFB) groundwater flow model. The SFB is the largest groundwater basin in the Upper Los Angeles River Area...

The Shaft Excavation Effect Experiment
The Shaft Excavation Effect (SEE) experiment has been carried out by Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC). Corresponding to this experiment, an evaluation system...

Hydrogeology of Caribbean Coral Reef Islands

Potential for Seawater Encroachment near Cumberland Island, GA

Recent Advances in Atoll Hydrogeology

Managing Plate-boundary Aquifers of New Zealand

Low Flow Index and Hydrogeological Characteristics
This work is set within a framework of research on drought phenomena, causes and effects, and the methods to fight the harmful effects of droughts in the agricultural, municipal and industrial...

Ground Water in the Pacific Rim Countries
This proceedings, Ground Water in the Pacific Rim Countries, consists of papers presented at the Symposium held in Honolulu, Hawaii, July 23-25,...

Source Term Model for Radioactive Waste Repository
A radioactive waste repository source term model is developed to predict radionuclide release rates from solidified waste packages disposed of in underground repository. Leach rates, i.e.,...

Dynamic Use of Geoscience Information to Develop Scientific Understanding for a Nuclear Waste Repository
The development and safety evaluation of a nuclear waste geologic repository require a proper scientific understanding of the site response. Such scientific understanding depends on information...

Analysis of Uncertainty in Ground-Water Quality Monitoring Network Design
The paper reviews alternative approaches to ground-water quality monitoring network design. Four general approaches to network design are reviewed: (1) hydrogeologic, (2) simulation, (3)...

Hydrogeologic Factors Affecting Trace Element Mobility
Alluvial deposits often comprise the aquifer beneath irrigated lands in the southwestern U.S. The presence of buried stream channels in, and layering of, shallow alluvial deposits are...

Hydrogeology Comes to the Surface
Before concluding whether groundwater is safe or contaminated, engineers must understand the science of hydrogeology. If they don't understand hydrogeology, unnecessary and...

Special Design Considerations

Low-Level Waste Disposal Design: An Overview
Low-Level radioactive waste disposal is regulated by several agencies. Mixed waste, which is both radioactive and chemically hazardous is regulated by two agencies with potentially different...

Regulatory and Environmental Issues of the Chisman Creek Superfund Site
This paper discusses the regulatory and environmental issues arising from the response to the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Chisman Creek Superfund Site in York County, Virginia. Field...

Hydrogeology of a Barrier Island System, Nags Head, North Carolina
The purpose of this research was to understand the dynamics of the water table prior to the start of municipal pumping and to predict the effect that the pumping would have upon the water...

Reclamation's Recharge Projects: California-Nevada
Under the High Plains States Groundwater Demonstration Program, the Bureau of Reclamation has recommended construction of 21 projects in 17 western states. The projects contain technical...
