    Management and Research of Desert Tortoises for the Yucca Mountain Project. A program has been developed for the Yucca Mountain Project (YMP) to manage and study the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizi), a threatened species that occurs at low densities at Yucca Mountain. The goals of this program are to better understand the biology and status of the desert tortoise population at Yucca Author: Kurt R. Rautenstrauch, Mike K. Cox, Ted B. Doerr, Ronald A. Green, Jim M. Mueller, Thomas P. O'Farre. Yucca Mountain isn’t the answer to our spent-fuel worries. But now that Congress has given the DOE a green light, events will have to run their contentious course in the federal courts and at.

Yucca Mountain is a mountain in Nevada, near its border with California, approximately miles ( km) northwest of Las d in the Great Basin, Yucca Mountain is east of the Amargosa Desert, south of the Nevada Test and Training Range and in the Nevada National Security is the site of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository, which is currently identified by Elevation: 6, ft (2, m)  NAVD About A Mountain is quirky little book.

In it, John D'Agata takes a look Las Vegas, Yucca Mountain and a teenager's suicide leap off the top of a Las Vegas landmark, the Stratosphere. Exactly what ties these things together is never made entirely clear, but half the fun of reading About A Mountain is pondering that enigmatic mystery/5.

Nuclear Fuel Cycle: Yucca Mountain Details 05/01/ Yucca Mountain Project - Duration:   In an unanticipated positive development for nuclear energy, the capacity factor of U.

reactors has increased dramatically in recent years, and most operating reactors now appear headed for year license renewals. "Shipments [of nuclear waste] will occur whether or not Yucca Mountain is approved," one of the booklets declares, which makes one wonder why Uncle Sam is going to all of this trouble.

We still don't know if it's a million years or a billion. But at least we left with "free" souvenirs. Even after spending about $11 billion on the possibly dubious Yucca Mountain project, and even after fee collection ceased, the Nuclear Waste Fund continues to earn that $ billion a year in. Situated some 90 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada Yucca Mountain is currently the only site that has been studied in detail for geological disposal of spent nuclear fuel and defense high-level waste.

There are ten (10) designated Affected Units of Local Governments (AULG's) in relative proximity to Yucca Mountain. These AULG's have been granted authority to provide information and public. Since an EIS must be completed and a license for the facility approved before work can begin on a repository at Yucca Mountain, no development activity would occur on the rail access facilities, which are part and parcel of the Yucca Mountain Project, until the EIS is complete and the license approved.

In The Road to Yucca Mountain, J. Samuel Walker traces the U.S. government's tangled efforts to solve the technical and political problems associated with radioactive waste. From the Manhattan Project through the designation in of Yucca Mountain in Nevada as a high-level waste repository, Walker thoroughly investigates the approaches adopted by the U.S.
