Three-dimensional lithostratigraphic model at Yucca Mountain, Nevada: A framework for fluid transport modeling and engineering design

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A three-dimensional lithostratigraphic model of the central block of Yucca MounEain. Nevada, illustrates how some activities can serve both site characterization and dcsign and construction of the Exploratory Studies Facility (ESF). Site-characterization activities supported bv this model include characterizing the three-dimensional geometry of lithologic units and faults, and providing boundary conditions for geostatistical models and site-scale fluid flow modeling. The model supports the conceptual design as construction efforts for the proposed ramps of the ESF and potential high-level nuclear waste repository.
