Summary

Between 1951 and 1992, 828 underground tests were conducted on the Nevada National Security Site, Nye County, Nevada.

From these rock samples, rock properties were analyzed and interpreted and compiled into project files and in published reports that are maintained at the Core Library and at the U.S. Geological Survey office in Henderson, Nevada. These rock-sample data include lithologic descriptions, physical and mechanical properties, and fracture characteristics. [...]
