Summary

This digital data set defines the boundary of the hydrogeologic framework model (HFM) developed by IT Corporation (1996) for the U.S. Department of Energy Underground Test Area Phase I project. The boundary encompasses an approximate 53,000 square-kilometer region which is centered on the Nevada Test Site (NTS) and extends from Death Valley to east of the East Pahranagat Range, and from the Black Mountains to north of Penoyer and the southern part of the Railroad Valleys. The HFM was developed using geologic reports, maps, measured stratigraphic sections, 54 regional interpretive cross sections, approximately 700 lithologic well logs, and geophysical interpretations to define the spatial distribution and composition of 20 hydrogeologic [...]

Purpose

The boundary of the HFM by IT Corporation (1996) was used to develop the HFM supporting the steady-state and transient ground-water flow models of the Death Valley regional ground-water flow system (see "Larger Work Citation", figure A-5, p. 15-17).
