Raw Data Report of Elemental Analyses from Hydrogeochemical and Stream Sediment Samples Taken Near Sterling and Fort Morgan, Northeastern Colorado, December 1976 and January 1977

Description: From summary: The University of Colorado, under contract with the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL), is currently performing an evaluation of geochemical relationships of water and sediments and seasonal variations to uranium for the South Platte drainage of northeastern Colorado. As a preliminary part of this study, samples were collected from 125 sites near Sterling and Fort Morgan, Colorado, during the period from December 20, 1976, to January 15, 1977. During this period the weather in the area was clear to partly cloudy, with daytime temperatures ranging from -12 to 12 C. Only a trace of precipitation, in the form of very light snow flurries, occurred during the sampling period. The sample site locations and numbers (the first two digits have been omitted) are shown on Plate I.

Uranium Concentrations in Lake and Stream Waters and Sediments from Selected Sites in the Susitna River Basin, Alaska

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this report is to make available to the public the results of a hydrogeochemical survey for uranium in the stream and lake waters and sediments of the Susitna River basin, Alaska. This work was done by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory (LASL) for the US Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA) as part of the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program.

Aerial Gamma-Ray and Magnetic Survey of the Delta Area--Utah: Final Report, Volume 1

Description: From abstract: Results of an ERDA-sponsored, high-sensitivity, airborne gamma-ray spectrometer and magnetometer survey of a portion of the Delta, Utah, NTMS, 1:250,000 scale quadrangle, carried out under Bendix Field Engineering Corporation Subcontract 76-019-L are discussed. The objective of the survey was to evaluate the Delta area as a uraniferous province, i.e., a region showing surface indications of a generally higher uranium content, and evidence of geochemical uranium enrichment over the other natural radioactive elements, where detailed exploration for uranium would likely be successful. The known presence of late stage Tertiary rhyolites and granites associated with fluorite and uranium occurrences and one productive uranium mine strongly suggested that the area is such a uraniferous province. A DC-3 aircraft equipped with a gamma-ray spectrometer using nine large-volume NaI detectors, two 400 channel analyzers, and ancillary geophysical and electronic equipment was employed for data collection.

Time of Travel of Solutes in the Tuscarawas River Basin, Ohio August and September, 1974

Description: Abstract: A time-of-travel study was made on a 106-mile reach of the Tuscarawas River to determine average velocity and dispersion into five subreaches, and a fluorescent dye used as a tracer material. At about the 50-percent flow-duration level, time-of-travel of peak concentration was 137 hours.

Distribution of Nitrate in Ground Water Redlands, California

Description: Report and geographical survey. This report examines the distribution of nitrates in the Redland area's ground water and concludes that this distribution depends primarily upon depth below the water table and areal location. Includes several maps and figures.

Indiana Stream-Temperature Characteristics

Description: From introduction: The purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to compile Indiana stream-temperature data and (2) to develop an equation for estimating water-temperature characteristics, as represented by harmonic coefficients, at locations where historical temperature data may no be available.
