Gamma-Radioactivity Investigations Related to Waste Disposal, Jackass Flats, Nevada Test Site
From introduction: Under the general supervision of the Health Division of the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, the U.S. Geological Survey is participating in geologic and hydrologic studies of the tile field constructed in Jackass Flats in the southwestern part of the Nevada Test Site as related to waste disposal, M. D. Shutler rendered valuable assistance in obtaining and evaluating portions of the data in this report. These investigations were done on behalf of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and were supported by the Division of Reactor Development and by the Albuquerque Operations Office.
Gamma-Radioactivity Investigations at the Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada: Interim Report, February 1960 to July 1961
Abstract: As a part of continuous geologic and geophysical investigations at the Nevada Test Site, gamma-radioactivity measurements are being made in tunnels and drill holes to determine semiquantitatively the natural gamma radioactivity of geologic formations and the distribution of nuclear-explosion-produced radioisotopes.
Ground-Water Investigations of the Project GNOME Area, Eddy and Lea Counties, New Mexico
From abstract: The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, through the Office of Test Operations, Albuquerque Operations Office, plans to detonate a nuclear device in a massive salt bed 1,200 feet beneath the land surface. The project, known as Project Gnome, is an element of the Plowshare program--a study of peacetime applications of nuclear fission. The location of the proposed underground shot is in a sparsely-populated area in southeastern Eddy County, N. Mex., east of the Pecos River and about 25 miles southeast of the city of Carlsbad.

From introduction: This report contains the preliminary results of the USGS investigations of the geology of the U12b.07 tunnel and shaft, and the U12b.09 tunnel at the Nevada Test Site.
Interim Geological Investigations in the U12e.06 Tunnel, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada
From introduction: This report details Vela Uniform program survey that determined the pre-explosion chemical and physical properties of the tuffs exposed in the tunnel for comparison with similar post-shot geologic data and evaluated these data in terms of predicting the geologic effects of the planned explosion.
Interim Geological Investigations in the U12e.03a and U12e.03b Tunnels, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada
From introduction: The geologic studies in the Ul2e.03a and Ul2e.03b tunnels were conducted as part of the Geological Survey's investigations for the Vela Uniform program, Project Shade, and were completed for the purpose of 1) determining the preshot lithologic, structural, and chemical and physical properties of the tuffs exposed in the tunnels for comparison wits postshot geologic data, and 2) evaluating these data in order to predict the geologic effects of the planned nuclear explosion at tie end of the tunnels.
Interim Geological Investigations in the U12b.08 Tunnel, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada
From introduction: The geologic studies in the U12b.08 tunnel were conducted by the U. S. Geological Survey on behalf of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission for the purpose of determining the pre-explosion chemical and physical properties of the tuffs exposed in the tunnel. These data will be used in evaluating the geologic effects of the explosion by comparison with similar post-shot geologic data.
Interim Geological Investigations in the U12e.04 Tunnel, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada
From introduction: The geologic studies in the U12e.04 tunnel within the Nevada Test Site were conducted for the purpose of determining the structure and chemical and physical properties of the tuffs exposed in the tunnel.
Ground Water Test Well C, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada : a Summary of Lithologic Data, Aquifer Tests, and Well Construction
From introduction: USGS is appraising the possibility, however slight, that the ground water beneath the Nevada Test Site, possibly contaminated by nuclear detonations, may carry radioactive fission products to places where they may constitute a public hazard.
Gravity Survey of the Nevada Test Site and Vicinity, Nye, Lincoln, and Clark Counties, Nevada: Interim Report
From introduction: The gravity survey of the Nevada Test Site and contiguous areas of southern Nevada and southeastern California has been made by the U.S. Geological Survey on behalf of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. The objective of this study is to delineate and interpret gravity anomalies and regional trends so that the configuration and depth of the buried erosional surface of the Paleozoic rocks may be determined.
Geologic Map of the Plutonium Valley Quadrangle, Nye and Lincoln Counties, Nevada
An index and geological map of Nevada's Plutonium Valley quadrangle in Nye and Lincoln Counties, Nevada
Outline of Geology of the U12k and U12k.01 Tunnels, Area 12, Nevada Test Site
From introduction: Descriptive data for the Ul2k tunnel system are summarized in table 1. The U12k and U12k.01 tunnels were driven in predominantly air-fall tuffs of the Grouse Canyon and Survey Butte Members of the Oak Spring Formation of- Miocene(?) or younger age. The base of the Grouse Canyon Member is exposed in the road cut 500 to 700 feet east of, and at the same approximate elevation as, the portal U12k tunnel. The contact of the Grouse Canyon Member with the younger Survey Butte Member is at.5+63R and 5+56L in Ul2k.O1L (Personnel tunnel) and at 7+08R and 7+03L in U12k.O1R (Line of sight tunnel). A total of 165 feet of tuff of the Grouse Canyon Member is exposed in and near the tunnel, but only 74 feet of the Survey Butte Member is exposed in the U12k tunnel system.

Relation Between Dual Acidity and Structure of H-Montmorillonite
The following report covers potentiometric studies with hydrogen-sensitive and cation-sensitive glass electrodes supplemented by chemical determinations and X-ray diffractions on a hydrogen-montmorillonite. These studies indicate that the clay behaves as a mixture of two acids, resulting from the presence of interlayer and edge exchange sites, both occupied by hydrogen ions.
