It considers the issues of the purpose and meaning of life by a metaphorical journey across an arroyo.
Article
Full-text available
The hydrologic effects of proposed irrigation with ground water of 8,320 acres of land in Muleshoe Flat, a 34-square-mile area in west-central Platte County, Wyo., have been assessed. Results generated by a digital ground-water-flow model indicate that, at the end of a 40-year period, ground-water-level declines of more than 50 feet can be expected...
Preprint
Full-text available
Time and space are contentious issues and their essence has been debated since antiquity. Are the concepts of time and space imponderable? We attempt an answer here.
Technical Report

ABSTRACT The ~25 km accessible trace of the north-south trending, west-side down, normal, mountain-front Pirate fault has been mapped to locate and describe those erosionally exhumed remnants of the fault that together provide a basis for structural reconstruction of this nominally Basin-Range tectonic feature. The fault forms the western boundary...

Article
This study evaluated the technical suitability of Yucca Mountain, Nevada, as a potential site for a mined geologic repository for the permanent disposal of radioactive waste. The evaluation was conducted primarily to determine early in the site characterization program if there are any features or conditions at the site that indicate it is unsuitab...
Conference Paper
Yucca Mountain, Nevada, is being investigated to determine its suitability for a mined geologic repository for the permanent storage of high-level nuclear waste. If a license is granted, the repository would be constructed in partially saturated welded tuff at {approx}300 m below land surface. The presence of an unsaturated zone that ranges from 30...
Technical Report
A digital model that mathematically simulares the flow of ground water, approximating the flor system as two-dimensional, has been applied to predict the long-term effects of irrigation and proponed industrial dumping from the unconfined Arikaree aquifer in a 400 square-mile area in southeastern Wyoming.Three cases that represent projected maximum,...
Article
Full-text available
A comparison between theoretical zero-age main-sequence stellar model ; calculations and the observational data derived from nearby stars is undertaken ; in the mass--luminosity and mass--radius planes for stars of less than solar mass. ; It is found that, although theory succeeds in representing the empirical low-mass ; mass - luminosity relation,...

Article
The 20th semiannual report of the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project (YMP) summarizes activities during the period from October 1, 1998 through March 31, 1999. YMP activities are aimed at evaluating Yucca Mountain as a suitable site for permanent geologic disposal of nuclear materials, as directed by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA). T...
Article
Full-text available
Yucca Mountain, Nevada, has been selected by the United States to be evaluated as a potential site for the development of a geologic repository for the disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. If the site is determined to be suitable for repository development and construction is authorized, the repository at the Yucca Mount...

Question
Dark matter apparently is local but also pervades the Universe with an abundance greater than that of "ordinary" matter. Is dark matter real or is something missing from our physics?
