Geodimeter Measurement of Earth Strains on Rainier Mesa, Nevada Test Site

Description: Abstract: "Geodimeter surveys were made on four traverses near the east scarp of Rainier Mesa between October 27, 1967 and April 26, 1968. These measurements were made in order to determine if an changes in distance between survey stations had resulted from downslope creep of the rocks behind the scarp, or if any displacements had resulted from nuclear explosions beneath the mesa and in adjacent areas. A persistent small but possibly significant, slopeward displacement was measured along one tr… more

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 fr… more
