Natural resource management
Using a combination of techniques to control or direct the use of resources and limit population size to reach a predetermined goal, such as sustainability.
Forest and rangeland birds of the United States: natural history and habitat use [ More info] Catalog of bird species common to forest and rangeland habitats in the U.S. with natural histories including taxonomic information, range, and habitat descriptions to assist land managers in resource management. Text available as a *.zip file.
Framework for Assessing the Sustainability of Monitored Natural Attenuation [ More info] Research findings and examples of application to real problems--When can natural processes to reduce, or even destroy, contaminants at toxic waste sites be relied on?
In-place oil shale resources examined by grade in the major basins of the Green River Formation, Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming [ More info] We estimated a total of 4.285 trillion barrels of oil in-place in the oil shale of this area using a geology-based assessment methodology.
In-Place Oil Shale Resources Underlying Federal Lands in the Piceance Basin, Western Colorado [ More info] We estimated an in-place oil shale resource of 1.07 trillion barrels under Federal mineral rights, or 70 percent of the total oil shale in place, in this area.
Land-use planning for nearshore ecosystem services--the Puget Sound Ecosystem Portfolio Model [ More info] Describes the types of concerns and observations used to help area resource managers analyze actual or potential changes in this highly developed ecosystem.
Marine aggregate resources and processes [ More info] Regional studies mapping the seafloor sedimentary character and assessing marine sand and gravel resources around the United States, to inform beach nourishment and coastal restoration, benthic habitat and sediment transport studies
Nahcolite Resources in the Green River Formation, Piceance Basin, Northwestern Colorado [ More info] Resource assessment of nahcolite, a mineral with a variety of industrial uses, which occurs with oil shale and is affected by the processes used to recover hydrocarbons from the rock.
National Coal Resource Assessment: Geologic assessment of coal in the Colorado Plateau: Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah [ More info] Coal resources, stratigraphy, geochemistry, coal quality and geology of coal in the Colorado Plateau, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. Text in PDF format and available on CD-ROM.
