Review of present groundwater monitoring programs at the Nevada Test Site by Ronald Lee Hershey( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Groundwater monitoring at the Nevada Test Site (NTS) is conducted to detect the presence of radionuclides produced by underground nuclear testing and to verify the quality and safety of groundwater supplies as required by the State of Nevada and federal regulations, and by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Orders. Groundwater is monitored at water-supply wells and at other boreholes and wells not specifically designed or located for traditional groundwater monitoring objectives. Different groundwater monitoring programs at the NTS are conducted by several DOE Nevada Operations Office (DOE/NV) contractors. Presently, these individual groundwater monitoring programs have not been assessed or administered under a comprehensive planning approach. Redundancy exists among the programs in both the sampling locations and the constituents analyzed. Also, sampling for certain radionuclides is conducted more frequently than required. The purpose of this report is to review the existing NTS groundwater monitoring programs and make recommendations for modifying the programs so a coordinated, streamlined, and comprehensive monitoring effort may be achieved by DOE/NV. This review will be accomplished in several steps. These include: summarizing the present knowledge of the hydrogeology of the NTS and the potential radionuclide source areas for groundwater contamination; reviewing the existing groundwater monitoring programs at the NTS; examining the rationale for monitoring and the constituents analyzed; reviewing the analytical methods used to quantify tritium activity; discussing monitoring network design criteria; and synthesizing the information presented and making recommendations based on the synthesis. This scope of work was requested by the DOE/NV Hydrologic Resources Management Program (HRMP) and satisfies the 1993 (fiscal year) HRMP Groundwater Monitoring Program Review task

The road less traveled : redesigning the higher education system of Nevada( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of qualitative and quantitative analyses of how well the higher education system in Nevada will meet the challenges of the future of current trends and patterns continue. The report contains three parts that present the data analysis, the key issues the Nevada Board of Regents confronts, with possible responses to them, and action items to consider for next steps. Interviews were conducted with key System, business, legislative, and educational leaders in the state, and data were collected from various campuses and the Chancellor's office. Findings suggest that Nevada must make significant changes to meet its goals in the face of rapid population growth. The scenarios reviewed through computer models involve significant increases in spending and significant increases in the performance of existing institutions. It appears that meeting the significant challenges faced by higher education in Nevada through bold changes may in fact be less challenging than attempting to meet them with incremental changes to the current system. Recommendations center on: (1) quality and access; (2) efficiency and accountability; (3) development of an effective assessment of student learning; (4) finance reforms; (5) separation of the funding of research and instruction; (6) refinement of the funding formula; (7) reevaluation of the fee setting structure; (8) changes in student financial aid policies; and (9) establishment of as simple a system of governance as possible. Appendixes describe development of a value-added measurement of undergraduate education, goals and criteria for evaluation, the data and computer simulation methodology of this study.

Annotated bibliography of literature relating to wind transport of plutonium-contaminated soils at the Nevada Test Site by Nicholas Lancaster( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the period from 1954 through 1963, a number of tests were conducted on the Nevada Test Site (NTS) and Tonopah Test Range (TTR) to determine the safety of nuclear devices with respect to storage, handling, transport, and accidents. These tests were referred to as ''safety shots.'' ''Safety'' in this context meant ''safety against fission reaction.'' The safety tests were comprised of chemical high explosive detonations with components of nuclear devices. The conduct of these tests resulted in the dispersion of plutonium, and some americium over areas ranging from several tens to several hundreds of hectares. Of the various locations used for safety tests, the site referred to as ''Plutonium Valley'' was subject to a significant amount of plutonium contamination. Plutonium Valley is located in Area 11 on the eastern boundary of the NTS at an elevation of about 1036 m (3400 ft). Plutonium Valley was the location of four safety tests (A, B, C, and D) conducted during 1956. A major environmental, health, and safety concern is the potential for inhalation of Pu{sup 239,240} by humans as a result of airborne dust containing Pu particles. Thus, the wind transport of Pu{sup 239,240} particles has been the subject of considerable research. This annotated bibliography was created as a reference guide to assist in the better understanding of the environmental characteristics of Plutonium Valley, the safety tests performed there, the processes and variables involved with the wind transport of dust, and as an overview of proposed clean-up procedures
