Surface In-Situ Networks
The Yucca Mountain meteorological monitoring program consists of six stations located within approximately 15 km of the mountain. Site 1 provides data for precipitation rate, precipitation quantity, wind (horizontal [10m and 60m] and vertical), temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, and barometric pressure. The remaining five sites provide data for precipitation rate, precipitation quantity, temperature and humidity. The goal is intended to confirm the adequacy of the precipitation data and YMP conceptual understanding regarding precipitation rate and quantity at and near Yucca Mountain for the purpose o confirming input data for infiltration models.
