Summary of the Mineralogy of the Colorado Plateau Uranium Ores

Description: Report summarizing information regarding the mineralogy of uranium ores of the Colorado Plateau. The report includes sections on classification, mineralogy of the primary unoxidized ores, oxidation sequence and mineralogy of vanadiferous uranium ores, mineralogy of oxidized nonvanadiferous uranium ores, relation of oxidation to water saturation of ore, relative stability and size of oxidized deposits, secondary enrichment, and time and depth of oxidation.

Two-Dimensional Computer Simulation of Hypervelocity Impact Cratering: Some Preliminary Results for Meteor Crater, Arizona

Description: A computational approach used for subsurface explosion cratering was extended to hypervelocity impact cratering. Meteor (Barringer) Crater, Arizona, was selected for the first computer simulation because it is one of the most thoroughly studied craters. It is also an excellent example of a simple, bowl-shaped crater and is one of the youngest terrestrial impact craters. Initial conditions for this calculation included a meteorite impact velocity of 15 km/s, meteorite mass of 1.67 x 10/sup 8/ kg, with a corresponding kinetic energy of 1.88 x 10/sup 16/ J (4.5 megatons). A two-dimensional Eulerian finite difference code called SOIL was used for this simulation of a cylindrical iron projectile impacting at normal incidence into a limestone target. For this initial calculation, a Tillotson equation-of-state description for iron and limestone was used with no shear strength. Results obtained for this preliminary calculation of the formation of Meteor Crater are in good agreement with field measurements. A color movie based on this calculation was produced using computer-generated graphics. 19 figures, 5 tables, 63 references.

USAEC Airborne Radiometric Reconnaissance in Arizona, California, Nevada and New Mexico, 1953 to 1956

Description: From introduction: This is one of a series of three reports on airborne radioactivity surveys in the United States. The reports contain the 185 airborne anomaly maps issued by the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission as a result of the AEC's aerial surveying program conducted from March 1952 to June 1956; two ground reconnaissance maps of Utah also are included. Most of the reconnaissance was done in the western United States.

A Method for Estimating Ground-Water Return Flow to the Lower Colorado River in the Yuma Area, Arizona and California--Executive Summary

Description: Purpose and scope: The purpose of this study was to develop a method for estimating the amount of subsurface return flow to the Colorado River in the Yuma area. This report presents a method that will permit an accounting of ground-water return flows from each side of the Colorado River in the Yuma reach. The estimates of return flow can be used by water-management agencies in determining return-flow credits for the States of Arizona and California.

Streamflow Losses and Changes in Ground-Water Levels Along the Salt and Gila Rivers Near Phoenix, Arizona--February 1978 to June 1980

Description: Scope: This report summarizes part of the hydrologic data needed to determine the effects of streamflow on ground-water storage. The report includes (1) streamflow data at selected points between the water-conservation reservoirs on the Salt and Verde Rivers and the Gila River as Gillespie Dam, (2) changes in ground-water levels in 169 observation wells from February 1978 to May 1980, (3) an estimate of the streamflow losses along the Salt and Gila Rivers between Granite Reef and Gillespie Dams from March 1978 to June 1980, and (4) the infiltration rates on May, 9, 1979, for the Salt River downstream from Granite Reef Dam. Most of the hydrologic data in this report are available in computer-printout form and may be consulted at U.S. Geological Survey offices in: Federal Building, 301 West Congress Street, Tucson, and Valley Center, Suite 1880, Phoenix. Copies of the data can be obtained at private expense.
