Regional Geohydrology of the Northern Louisiana Salt-Dome Basin, Part 3, Potentiometric Levels of the Wilcox-Carrizo and Sparta Aquifers

Description: From abstract: This report is the third in a series of reports describing the regional geohydrology of the northern Louisiana salt-dome basin. The Wilcox-Carrizo and Sparta aquifers are the principal Tertiary aquifers of regional extent in the basin. The Wilcox-Carrizo aquifer is not affected by regional water-level declines, as no large pumping centers have been developed. Water-level fluctuations in wells are mostly seasonal. As shown by the hydrographs of seven wells, the seasonal fluctuations are generally less than 10 feet annually. Therefore, the potentiometric surface of the Wilcox-Carrizo aquifer in northwestern Louisiana is shown by contours using data collected from 1960-80.

Uranium in the Southern United States

Description: From introduction: In this study on raw material sources of uranium the Southern Interstate Nuclear Board has catalogued all known occurrences of uranium and some references to thorium in a 17-state area (P1. 1). These occurrences have been evaluated as potential sources of uranium by the State Geological Surveys and the consultant group of SINB. Favorability guides have been applied to the known occurrences and recommendations have been made for future action by the states involved, federal agencies, or by industry. State recommendations are included in state-by-state summaries. The state reports were written either by personnel of the State Geological Surveys or were abstracted from State geological survey data by members of the consultant group...The purpose of this study was to compile information on and systematically assess uranium and other radioactive occurrences in the region. The SINB undertook the project because of its statutory, interstate capability as an extension of government in each of the 17 states, an arrangement that lends itself effectively to this cooperative undertaking.

Backwater and Discharge at Highway Crossing with Multiple Bridges in Louisiana and Mississippi

Description: Purpose and Scope: The principal objective of this project was to measure the backwater and discharge distribution for multiple bridges. These data have been used to determine if the methods developed by Schneider and others (1976) for single-opening highway crossings could be applied to multiple bridges. In addition, the method developed by Tracey and Carter (1955) and Cragwall (1958) was modified to use the procedure proposed by Schneider and others (1976) to calculate friction losses in the approach reach. This modified procedure was then also tested.

U.S. Geological Survey Research in Radioactive Waste Disposal--Fiscal Year 1981

Description: Abstract: The report summarizes progress on geologic and hydrologic research related to the disposal of radioactive wastes. The research is described according to whether it is related most directly to (1) high-level and transuranic wastes; (2) low-level wastes, or (3) uranium mill tailings. Included is research applicable to the identification and geohydrologic characterization of waste-disposal sites, to investigations of specific sites where wastes have been stored, and to studies of regions or environments where waste-disposal sites might be located. A significant part of the activity is concerned with techniques and methods for characterizing disposal sites and studies of geologic and hydrologic processes related to the transport and (or) retention of waste radionuclides.
