PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In compliance with Department of Energy (DOE) Order 5400.1, a preoperational environmental survey was conducted for the Tshirege woodland site--an experimental area managed by the Earth and Environmental Science Group (EES-15)--where radioactive tritium ({sup 3}H) will be injected ten cm deep in and around the base of pinyon (Pinus edulis) and one-seeded juniper (Juniperus monosperma) trees during the summer of 1990. The site is located at the lower end of Canada del Buey close to the intersection of Pajarito and State Road 4. Baseline values of {sup 3}H were measured in soil and plant samples from five locations immediately surrounding ... continued below

The site is located at the lower end of Canada del Buey close to the intersection of Pajarito and State Road 4. Baseline values of {sup 3}H were measured in soil and plant samples from five locations immediately surrounding the study area. Mean values of {sup 3}H in soils collected from the 0--5 and 25--30 cm depths were 1.24 ({+-}0.22) and 1.08 ({+-}0.41) pCi mL{sup {minus}1}, respectively. Pinyon needles averaged 1.68 ({+-}0.18) pCi mL{sup {minus}1} and blue grama grass (Bouteloua gracilis) averaged 1.16 ({+-}0.95) pCi mL{sup {minus}1}.
