The compositional variability of the phenocryst-poor member of the Ma Topopah Spring Tuff at the potential repository level was assessed by duplicate analysis of 20 core samples from the cross drift at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

Previous analyses of outcrop and core samples of the Topopah Spring Tuff showed that the phenocryst-poor rhyolite, which includes both lithophysal and nonlithophysal. This report presents data on drilling operations, lithology, borehole geophysics, water-level monitoring, core analysis, ground-water chemistry, pumping tests, and packer-injection tests for test well USW H The well is one of a series of test wells drilled in and near the southwestern part of the Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada, in cooperation with the U.S.

Geographic features were low moisture, geologically stable, & far away from major population centers.). Yucca Mountain lies within a faulted, km-wide Neogene graben (Fridrich, ), bounded on the west by the Bare Mountain fault and on the east by a normal fault (Potter et al., ).

Small basalt flows and cinder cones erupted in Crater Flat, west of Yucca Mountain, as recently as 80, years ago (Heizler et al.,p. ).
