Daily results of the initial operation of the Los Alamos salt-gradient solar pond

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The results of analysis of the initial data obtained on the Los Alamos National Laboratory salt-gradient solar pond, a 232 m/sup 2/ pond constructed for the primary purpose of studying pond hydrodynamics, are presented. The pond and the data-acquisition system were complete and in full operation by August 14, 1982. By September 21, 1982, the lower convecting zone had reached a temperature of 56/sup 0/C. An energy balance was performed over this period and is presented. Soil conductivity determinations have been made from the data, and the method is discussed. As a result of a leak discovered in the pond ... continued below

An energy balance was performed over this period and is presented. Soil conductivity determinations have been made from the data, and the method is discussed. As a result of a leak discovered in the pond in September, a method of determining the leak rate was developed, and the results are included.
