The study of the hydrology of arid regions greatly expanded at the end of the 20th century as humans sought to reduce groundwater pollution from landfills, waste dumps and other forms of land disposal. Historically viewed as wastelands where little or no water percolated to the underlying water table, the discovery of large-scale contamination beneath arid disposal sites such as the Hanford Pore water chloride concentrations data from over 10 boreholes in the unsaturated zone had also been used for infiltration estimates. The pore water samples were extracted by uniaxial or triaxial compression from the nonwelded units [Yang et al., , ], and by ultracentrifugation from the densely welded units [Yang et al., ].   DOE. av.
