The library section provides a central location for extensive information regarding the history and mission of the NNSS. These resources include fact sheets, historical and current videos, photos, and publications including environmental reports, historical documents, U.S. nuclear tests, and newsletters.
All of these materials support the mission and vision of the NNSS.
The annual Nevada National Security Site Environmental Report (NNSSER or ASER) contains information on all programs and activities conducted in and around the NNSS, at the North Las Vegas Facility, and at the Remote Sensing Laboratory-Nellis to protect the environment and the public. Activities reported include environmental management system performance and implementation, compliance with all environmental permits; monitoring of radionuclides in air, groundwater, and biota; direct radiation monitoring; calculation of the public’s radiation dose from activities conducted on the NNSS; results of Clean Air Act, Safe Drinking Water Act and Clean Water Act monitoring; progress towards remediation of all contaminated sites; environmental monitoring of waste management sites; protection of cultural resources; and monitoring of protected species and habitats on the NNSS. The NNSA Nevada Field Office, contractors, and NNSS users perform these activities. Reports older than those listed below are available upon request.
