      Distinct geologic units can have similar hydrogeologic properties and can be combined into a single water bearing unit. In contrast, facies changes within a single geologic unit, or highly heterogeneous strata may result in highly variable hydrogeologic properties, requiring a single geologic unit to be subdivided into distinct hydrogeologic units.

Water-Resources Investigations ReportU.S. Geological Survey, Denver. Google ScholarCited by: Yucca Mountain is an arid site proposed for consideration as the nation's first underground high-level radioactive waste repository. Low rainfall and a thick unsaturated zone are important physical attributes of the site because the quantity of water likely to reach the waste and the paths and rates of movement of the water to the saturated zone under likely future climates will be major.

The genesis of perched water at Yucca Mountain is much debated among Yucca Mountain Project scientists, and several conceptual models have been discussed (Rousseau et al., ; Wu et al., b). The permeability barrier conceptual model for perched-water occurrence has been used in unsaturated-zone flow modeling studies for the Yucca Mountain.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Characterization of hydrogeologic units using matrix properties approach and rationale for systematically evaluating hydrologic properties of rocks from unsaturated zone boreholes at Yucca Mountain,in order to develop detailed hydrogeologic units,is hydraulic parameters associated with the units are included for use in site-scale unsaturated zone modeling of the study area.

Yucca Mountain on and adjacent to the Nevada Test Site in southwestern Nevada is being studied as a potential site for a high-level nuclear waste geologic repository. The United States Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Department of Energy, is evaluating the hydrogeologic characteristics of the site as part of the Yucca Mountain Cited by: On the basis of the degree of welding, or subsequently on the degree of fracturing, the volcanic rocks in the unsaturated zone at Yucca Mountain are grouped into five hydrogeologic units [Montazer and Wilson, ; Ortiz et al., ].

Beginning from the land surface, they are (1) the Tiva Canyon welded (TCw) unit, (2) the Paintbrush nonwelded Cited by: Preface.

These safety and licensing concerns regarding the Yucca Mountain site are not new observations.

The book examines fluid flow and transport mechanisms, noting the difficulty of modeling solute transport, and identifies geochemical and environmental tracer data as important components of the modeling process. Finally, the book recommends several areas for continued research.

Indeed, when the State of Nevada did a review of the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Plan infocusing on the hydrogeological pathways for possible radionuclide escape, one of its seven major "concerns" was using short-term studies as the basis for long-term site predictions.
