      Thermal history of the unsaturated zone at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, USA. Secondary calcite, silica and minor amounts of fluorite deposited in fractures and cavities record the chemistry, temperatures, and timing of past fluid movement in the unsaturated zone at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, the proposed site of a high-level radioactive waste repository. The axes of sharp folds and the offset of the interflow zones alongfaults form subsurface dams that affect the movement of ground water. Water reaching the interflow zones tends to move down the dip of the flows from fold axes and to collect updip behind faults that are transverse to the direction of movement (Newcomb, ).

This zone is limited above by the land surface and below by the surface of the zone of saturation (i.e., the water table). Also called the unsaturated zone or zone of aeration. According to Freeze and Cherry (): 1.

      Furthermore, there was a thick zeolitic unit above the water table that would impede the movement of water to the saturated zone and sorb several of the radioactive elements should there be any leakage. A more complete discussion of the advantages on the unsaturated zone at Yucca Mountain is presented by Roseboom (). In July , the DOE. Bonell, M., Gilmour, D. A. and Cassels, D.

MOVEMENT OF MOISTURE IN THE UNSATURATED ZONE IN A LOESS-MANTLED AREA, SOUTHWESTERN KANSAS By ROBERT C.

Water Movement in the Unsaturated Zone [14] Total potentials below the root zone decreased monotonically with depth at the NHP rangeland site and irrigated sites in the SHP and NHP (Figure 3), indicating the potential for downward water movement in the deep UZ at those sites. This report evaluates water movement through thick unsaturated zones in areas of southwestern Kansas where rangeland and irrigated agriculture were the dominant land uses.

Comparisons of hydraulic and chemical data collected from three study sites (fig. 1) provide insights into the processes and rates of water movement in the thick unsaturated zone overlying the central High Plains aquifer.

As concluded in these studies, lateral movement of water and solutes is usually significant if the medium is stratified, the initial moisture content is low, the size of the application area is small relative to the size of the unsaturated zone, and the application rate is small [Gelhar et al., ].

This manual provides operators, engineers, and other professionals with a basic understanding of groundwater that will help them make decisions on water-well design and manual covers geology, groundwater movement, groundwater quality, regulatory issues, water-well types and construction, pumps, water treatment, water-well problems, and groundwater recharge and storage.

-The zone of saturation is the ground immediately below the water table. The pores and fractures in soil and rocks are saturated with water.-The zone of saturation is less corrosive than the unsaturated zone above the water table.

The moisture content in the region is. Robert C. Prill has written: 'Movement of moisture in the unsaturated zone in a loess-mantled area, southwestern Kansas' -- subject(s): Artificial groundwater recharge, Groundwater flow, Loess. Slow infiltration rates through loess and other fine-grained soils hinder downward movement of water through unsaturated zone profiles (Weinthal et al., ; R.C.

The cool ground water was used to cool air in heat exchangers, and then often discharged to waste.Hydrogeologists, water-resource specialists, civil and agricultural engineers, earth and environmental scientists and agronomists will benefit from this informative and practical book. It can serve as the primary text for a graduate-level course on groundwater recharge or as an adjunct text for courses on groundwater hydrology or hydrogeology.Site Description.
