  • This poster provides graphic data for 2010-2012 of collective total effective dose (TED) by site, and graphical data for 2008-2012 of components of TED, average measurable TED, percentage of collective TED above dose, collective dose and average measurable dose (1974-2012), and numbers of individuals in the DOE workforce, total number of records of monitored individuals, and number of individuals with a measurable dose. Also, there is a table of the number of individuals receiving >2 rems administrative control level and >5 rems annual limit for 2008-2012.
  • Numerous thermal springs present in northern Dixie Valley, Nevada, are the surface expression of a deep-seated geothermal system. The structural setting, a complex asymmetric graben controls the location of surface springs and migration of thermal fluids to the surface. The distribution of arsenic and mercury in the soils of the valley correlates well with the occurrence of structures which may be in communication with the underlying geothermal system. Generally anomalous arsenic values occur along structures near the playa where fine-grained sediments and a high water table occur. Mercury values are uniformly low near the playa but are typically anomalous alongmore » structures in the coarser fan deposits. The complementary geochemical signatures of arsenic and mercury which arise from basic differences in elemental chemical behavior have been useful in delineating the structural trends of the valley. The structural model indicated by the geochemistry and results of drilling suggest future targets should be selected east of the Dixie Meadows fault, within the inner graben.« less
  • Remote sensing, the science of evaluating the earth and its systems from a distance, continues to become more exact in its methods and more widely used and accepted as a tool for geological investigations. Nonetheless, methods of processing and analyzing remotely sensed data remain a mystery to many potential users. Case histories explaining the use of remote sensing as a stand-alone tool or integral part of original exploration for petroleum and minerals have not been overly abundant. Remotely sensed data, when appropriate applied and integrated into geological modeling, mapping, and exploration programs, can result in savings of time and moneymore » by the overview of an area of interest these data provide. Indeed, remotely sensed data can provide information on an area (e.g., mineralogical differences and bulk properties of surficial materials) that cannot be obtained otherwise without extensive field sampling and subsequent laboratory analysis.« less
