    [1] We describe a subspace Monte Carlo (SSMC) technique that reduces the burden of calibration‐constrained Monte Carlo when undertaken with highly parameterized models. When Monte Carlo methods are used to evaluate the uncertainty in model outputs, ensuring that parameter realizations reproduce the calibration data requires many model runs to condition each realization.   Thermal conductivities of rock matrix and fluid as well as the other fluid properties (ρ f, μ f and c f), and consequently the filtration velocity in eq. (4), depend on temperature and er with eq. (2) these functions constitute a non-linear coupling between the both eqs (1) ease the adaptation to the highly variable conditions in the subsurface, the non-linearities Cited by:

RESEARCH OBJECTIVES The objective of this research is to carry out field studies at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, to characterize the hydrogeologic processes and conditions leading to water seepage into.

    Because of loudly voiced concern over the direction of the DOE’s mission plan and the decision to abandon the search for a repository site in the east, Congress passed the Nuclear Waste Policy Act Amendments of The amendments restructured DOE’s high-level waste program. The only site that would be considered would be Yucca Flats, Nevada. FEBRUARY VOLUME XXII NUMBER 1.

Computation of porosity and water content from geophysical logs, Yucca Mountain, Nevada Technical Report Nelson, P H Neutron and density logs acquired in boreholes at Yucca Mountain, Nevada are used to determine porosity and water content as a function of depth.

Geologic and related investigations at Yucca Mountain in southwestern Nevada focus on a rectangular area of some km 2 (65 mi 2) that covers the central part of the mountain and is informally referred to as the “site area” with respect to the proposed geologic repository for high-level radioactive wastes.

A set of detailed geostatistical simulations of porosity has been produced for a layered stratigraphic sequence of welded and nonwelded volcanic tuffs at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

The simulations are produced using a composite. model of spatial continuity and they are highly conditioned to abundant drill hole (core) information.

The finely broken up material was given a large saturated permeability, × 10 −11 m 2, typical of fractures in the Yucca Mountain welded tuff, and a relationship between saturated permeability k s and capillary radius r c (k s = r c 2 /8) (from the measured data of Yucca Mountain tuffs, Apache Leap tuffs, and Las Cruces soil) was imposed Cited by: Compared to nuclear waste disposal programs in countries where geological disposal will be in saturated rocks below the water table, Yucca Mountain, which was proposed at one time as a potential repository site in the U.S., is unique, in that the proposed repository would be located in unsaturated rock approximately m above the water table Cited by: Many USGS reports on water resources are now being served online.

Because the USGS has been historically active in the development of mathematical models for ground water flow and transport, and because similar activity for surface water quality models has been (at least in recent years) limited to the integration of existing models in decision support systems, the following discussion of predictive models.

Parameters were estimated by calibration using measured water content and pressure head time series. Key output was the soil water flux at three depths. The base model provided an excellent fit to the soil water contents but failed to simulate measured soil water fluxes.
