    Ground-water flow through the region south and west of Frenchman Flat, in the Ash Meadows subbasin of the Death Valley ground-water flow system, is controlled mostly by faults which arrange the distribution of permeable and impermeable rocks. In addition, most permeability is along fractures caused by faulting in carbonate rocks. Large faults are more likely to reach the potentiometric surface Cited by: 1.   In June of , disaster struck again, this time on U.S. soil. Area 25 of the Nevada Test Site, which was now being used as the site for a project called NERVA: Nuclear Engine Rocket Vehicle.

    Background Paper THE NEVADA TEST SITE. Description of Area The Nevada Test Site is located in southern Nye County, , in Frenchman Flat. The original and still primary purpose of the Nevada Test Site is to provide an on-continent site for testing nuclear weapons. From through , announced nuclear. The Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), previously the Nevada Test Site (NTS), is a United States Department of Energy reservation located in southeastern Nye County, Nevada, about 65 miles ( km) northwest of the city of Las ly known as the Nevada Proving Grounds, the site was established on 11 January for the testing of nuclear devices, covering approximately 1, Coordinates: 37°07′N °03′W / .

    Between and , 10 underground nuclear tests were conducted at Frenchman Flat on the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), each providing valuable data in a few spectacular seconds. In the decades to follow, NNSS scientists worked to understand . The Nevada Test Site is managed by the Department of Energy and is the largest known energy research area in the world. From Mercury in the south it extends north up to the Tonopah Test Range (TTR). The NTS is most famous for the Atmospheric and Underground Testing done here in the 's to 's.

2 Analysis of Water Levels in the Frenchman Flat Area, Nevada Test Site Figure 1. Location of Nevada Test Site, and Frenchman Flat, Mercury Valley, and Yucca Flat Hydrographic Areas, southern Nevada.

EXPLANATION Precipitation station Nevada Test Site boundary Administrative-area boundary within Nevada Test Site–Area number is indicated. Analysis of water levels in 21 wells in the Frenchman Flat area, Nevada Test Site, provides information on the accuracy of hydraulic-head calculations, temporal water-level trends, and potential causes of water-level fluctuations.

Accurate hydraulic heads are particularly important in Frenchman Flat where the hydraulic gradients are relatively flat (less than 1 foot per mile) in the alluvial. Frenchman Flat is a hydrographic basin in the Nevada National Security Site south of Yucca Flat and north of Mercury, flat was used as an American nuclear test site and has a sq mi (15 km 2) dry lake bed (Frenchman Lake) that was used as a s airstrip before it was chosen after the start of the Korean War for the Nevada Proving Grounds.

The depth of the basin beneath Frenchman Flat is estimated using a gravity inversion method. Gamma-gamma density logs from two wells in Frenchman Flat constrained the density profiles used to create the gravity inversion model. Three initial models were considered using data from one well, then a final model is proposed based on new information from the second well.
