      Yucca Mountain is a mountain in Nevada, near its border with California, approximately miles ( km) northwest of Las d in the Great Basin, Yucca Mountain is east of the Amargosa Desert, south of the Nevada Test and Training Range and in the Nevada National Security is the site of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, which is currently identified by.

      Analytical data for stable isotopes in ground water from beneath Yucca Mountain, when examined in map view, show areal patterns of heterogeneity that can be interpreted in terms of mixing of at least three end members. One end member must be isotopically heavy in terms of hydrogen and oxygen and have a young apparent {sup 14}C age such as water found at the north end of Yucca Mountain beneath. J — Book says geology wrong at Yucca - Study's scientist calls part of mountain a 'volcano' — A new book by three dozen scientists from across the country is questioning the suitability of Yucca Mountain as a dump site for the nation's high-level radioactive waste — By Launce Rake Las Vegas Sun (More about the book).

      Ten wells in the Yucca Mountain area of southern Nevada have been sampled for chemical analysis. Samples were obtained during pumping of water from the entire well bore (composite sample) and in one instance by pumping water from a single isolated interval in well UEb number 1. Sodium is the most abundant cation and bicarbonate the most abundant anion in all water samples. Infiltration of snowmelt along the bottom of Forty mile Canyon seems to be the most likely recharge mechanism for Yucca Mountain ground water. Ground‐water recharge in southern Nevada was nearly synchronous with the last lake cycle in the Lahontan basin in northern Nevada.

The configuration of the southward-sloping water table under Yucca Mountain is dominated by an abrupt decline of m over a distance of less than 2 km. This northeast-striking zone of large hydraulic gradient (of or more) separates an area of moderate gradient (of about ) to the north from an area of very small gradient () to the south.

As currently designed, the repository at one point is approximately meters above the water table; the depths will range from to meters. The purpose of this report is to examine the impact of an earthquake on the ground-water system at Yucca Mountain.

[John B Czarnecki; Richard K Waddell; United States. Department of Energy.; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Yucca Mountain is composed mostly of tuff, or consolidated volcanic ash. Tuff has the ability to actually absorb radionuclides, which allows the Yucca Mountain's bedrock to actually filter contaminated water before it reaches the water table (Krauskopf, ).

Yucca Mountain has alternating layers of welded and nonwelded tuff.conditions of ground-water resources, (2) detect and document changes in those resources during the inves­ tigations of Yucca Mountain, and (3) provide a basis for analyzing and identifying potential adverse effects on ground-water resources resulting from investiga­ tions of Yucca Mountain.Tne U.S.
