Title Estimation of groundwater velocities from Yucca Flat to the Amargosa Desert using geochemistry and environmental isotopes
Creator Hershey, Ronald L. Acheampong, Steve Y.
Description Geochemical modeling techniques were applied to groundwater flowpaths from Yucca Flat on the Nevada Test Site (NTS) to the Amargosa Desert, south of the NTS to estimate groundwater flow velocities for independent comparison to velocities calculated by other methods. The groundwater flowpaths examined considered flow in the carbonate aquifer beneath Yucca and Frenchman flats mixing with flow from carbonate aquifers east and southeast of the NTS and discharging at wells south of the NTS border....
