The Absorption Spectra of Complexes of Uranium (VI) with Some [beta]-Diketones

Description: Abstract: "The absorption spectra of the complexes of uranium (VI) with four [beta]-diketones were determined under various conditions of pH, concentration of uranium, and alcohol concentration. Under optimum conditions, the maximum molar absorptivity (31,200) is obtained using 2-furoyltri-fluoroacetone. This compares with about 4,000 and 19,000 for the thiocyanate and dibenzoylmethane complexes, respectively."

An Analysis of Salinity in Streams of the Green River Basin

Description: Abstract: Dissolved-solids concentrations and loads can be estimated from streamflow records using a regression model derived from chemical analyses of monthly samples. The model takes seasonal effects into account by the inclusion of simple-harmonic time functions. Monthly mean dissolved-solids loads simulated for a 6-year period at U.S. Geological Survey water-quality stations in the Green River Basin of Wyoming agree closely with corresponding loads estimated from daily specific-conductance records. In a demonstration of uses of the model, an average gain of 114,000 tons of dissolved solids per year was estimated for 6-year period in a 70-mile reach of the Green River from Fontemelle Reservoir to the town of Green River, including the lower 30-mile reach of the Big Sandy River.

Assessment of Water Quality in Streams Draining Coal-Producing Areas in Ohio

Description: From introduction: In 1975 a project was begun to provide information on several aspects of coal hydrology in Ohio. The first phase was a reconnaissance of water-quality conditions in coal-mining regions. Phase one had two primary objectives; to document the occurrence of certain inorganic and organic constituents in waters of the coal-mining regions and to determine if the concentrations of those constituents were related to coal mining. The second phase of the project was a more detailed study of four basins sampled during the first phase.

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this study are to derive base flow estimates for representative parts of the Cretaceous and Tertiary clastic outcrop area as an aid in estimating recharge to the sand aquifers; to use base flow relations to estimate aquifer hydraulic parameters; and to relate the lithology of the aquifer to the streamflow duration curves.

Basement Flooding and Foundation Damage from Water-Table Rise in the East New York Section of Brooklyn, Long Island, New York

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose and scope of this report is to present the factors that have caused the water-table rise in the East New York section of Brooklyn. The rising water table in Kings County is not sudden or new; it has a history of more than two decades. It will refocus attention on the problem of changing ground-water levels in areas where intensive ground-water pumping has ceased or is occurring.

Borehole Gravity Meter Observations in Drill Hole Test Well-B, Yucca Flat, Nevada Test Site

Description: Abstract: "Fifteen in situ interval densities were calculated from the borehole gravity meter observations made in Test Well-B. The weighted average density for all the rocks sampled by the gravity meter is 1.83 gm/cc. The alluvium density ranges from 1.71 to 1.82 gm/cc and averages 1.76 gm/cc. The lake beds range from 1.91 to 1.93 gm/cc and average 1.92 gm/cc. The Rainier Mesa Member averages 1.83 gm/cc. The Tiva Canyon Member averages 1.74 gm/cc and the upper 110 feet of Topopah Spring Member has a density of 2.30 gm/cc."

Borehole Gravity Meter Observations in Drill Hole UCe-18, Hot Creek Valley, Nye County, Nevada

Description: Abstract: "Drill hole UCe-18 was successfully logged with the U.S. Geological Survey-La Coste Romberg borehole gravity meter to a depth of 6,488 feet. That density increases with depth is apparent in both the alluvium and volcanic rock. The in situ density of the alluvium measured by the gravity meter ranges from 1.77 to 2.34 gm/cc; the lake beds beneath the alluvium have a density of 2.22 gm/cc; and the rhyolitic rocks range in density from 2.26 to 2.47 gm/cc. The average density determined from the borehole gravity meter data for the alluvium plus the lake beds is 2.22 gm/cc and for the volcanic rocks is 2.35 gm/cc."

Clay Minerals in the Mudstones of the Ore-Bearing Formations of the Colorado Plateau

Description: From abstract: "Mudstone samples were collected from uranium-vanadium ore-bearing sedimentary formations on the Colorado Plateau to determine if differences could be detected in the gross clay mineralogy between red and green mudstones which are otherwise stratigraphically equivalent, between ore-bearing and barren mudstone, and between other relationships referred to in the conclusions below."

Delineation of the Shinarump Pinchout by Drilling, Clay Gulch, San Juan County, Utah

Description: From abstract: The results of diamond-drill exploration for the Shinarump member of the Chinle formation in Clay Gulch, San Juan County, Utah, indicate that between Clay Gulch and exposures along Red House Cliffs, about 2 miles east, a dominantly continuous blanket of the Shinarump member wedges out northeast of a line trending N. 150 W.

Description of Core from Atomic Energy Commission Drill Hole Number 1, Project Gnome, Eddy County, New Mexico

Description: From abstract: Drilling at the Project GNOME site, which is in the approximate center of sec. 34, T. 23 S., R. 30 E., NMPM, was undertaken in August and September 1958 by the W-W Drilling Company. The purpose of drilling this hole, which is at the precise location of the proposed shaft, was to determine (1) the lithologic and water-bearing characteristics of the rocks of Cenozoic, Mesozoic, and Paleozoic age that lie above the salt-bearing sequence in the Salado formation; (2) the depth to the top of the unleached salt and associated evaporites in the Salado formation; and (3) the local details of the salt-bearing sequence in the Salado formation.

Fluorimetric Determination of Uranium in Shales, Lignites, and Monazites After Alkali Carbonate Separation

Description: Abstract: "Comparative data are presented on separations of microgram amounts of uranium from milligram amounts of various metal ions with Na2Co3-K2CO3, Na2CO3-K2CO3-H2O2, and Na2CO3-NaClO. The Na2CO3-K2CO3 separation procedure is applied to the analysis of shales, lignites, and monazites. This method will determine as little as 0.001 percent uranium in shales and lignites and 0.01 percent uranium in monazites."
