The isotopic compositions of uranium in tuffs spanning the water table in two Yucca Mountain boreholes indicate that Pleistocene water-table rises likely were restricted to 25–50 m above modern positions and are in approximate agreement with water-table rises estimated from zeolitic-to-vitric transitions in the Yucca Mountain tuffs (less than. Unadjusted ages of ground-water samples indicate that most recharge in the Yucca Mountain and Amargosa Desert areas of southern Nevada may have occurred betw .

Airflow at Yucca Mountain is channeled north and south by the north-south alignment of Yucca Mountain and Fran Ridge, located to the east of Fortymile Wash. Wind direction is variable among sites and during different seasons, however. For example, sites 1 and 8 have northwest and southerly winds throughout most of the year, but winds from the. gs simulated effects of increased recharge on the ground water flow system of yucca mountain and vicinity, nevada california. 01 sites on or near yucca mountain, nevada. across fortymile wash, nevada test site, nevada. 40 CFR Part BACKGROUND INFORMATION DOCUMENT FOR 40 CFR PUBLIC HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL RADIATION PROTECTION STANDARDS FOR YUCCA MOUNTAIN, NEVADA June U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of .

Among these methods is that of Savard (), who estimated a constant volume loss rate in Fortymile Wash in Yucca Mountain, Nevada, of m3/km. Another estimate that takes into account the duration of flow was suggested by Ben-Zvi (), who estimated infiltration losses at m3/km/hr.

Czarnecki, Richard K. Waddell, and Geological Survey (U.S.) (page. Of the parameters estimated by HYDRUS-1D inverse simulations, K s has the greatest impact on the falling head test model results when the system is near saturation (volumetric water content > 90%). According to the simulation results, the biozone is near saturation and, therefore, K s weighted most heavily in the data analysis.   Ground-water recharge from streamflow data, NW Florida.
