Title: Geohydrologic data from drill-bit cuttings and rotary cores from test hole USW UZ-13, Yucca Mountain Area, Nye County, Nevada

Abstract

Test hole USW UZ-13 is the fourth of a series of shallow unsaturated-zone test holes drilled in and near the southwestern part of the Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada, in cooperation with the US Department of Energy. All of these test holes are a part of the Yucca Mountain Project to identify the suitability of the site for the underground storage of high-level radioactive wastes. This report contains a description of the methods used in drilling and coring of test hole USW UZ-13; a description of the methods used in the collecting, handling, and testing of test-hole samples; lithologic information from the test hole; and water-content, water-potential, bulk-density and grain-density data for the test hole. 14 refs., 5 figs., 10 tabs.
