Mapping, monitoring, and modeling Western Gateway Community landscape dynamics [ More info] Geospatial analysis of factors affecting communities that are adjacent to Federal lands, especially those lands subject to varying public interest and visitation.
USGS National Map of Surficial Mineralogy [ More info] Maps of exposed surface mineral groups derived from automated spectral analysis of satellite and airborne imaging systems; these data suggest areas that may contain mineral deposits of various types.
Assessment of In-Place Oil Shale Resources of the Green River Formation, Uinta Basin, Utah and Colorado [ More info] Using a geology-based assessment methodology, we estimated a total of 1.32 trillion barrels of oil in place in eighteen oil shale zones in this Eocene geologic unit.
Bats of Ouray National Wildlife Refuge [ More info] Detailed information on capture-and-release surveying as well as acoustic monitoring of bats indicates prevalence of various species and, for the captured specimens, physiological characteristics.
Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination (GeoMAC) wildland fire perimeters, 2008 [ More info] Where the fires were, as GIS data in shapefile format, geographic coordinates, NAD83.
Desert tortoise research at Western Ecological Research Center (WERC) [ More info] Links to research studies, conservation information, and general information on desert tortoises at the Western Ecological Research Center in Sacramento, California.
Assessment of in-place oil shale resources of the Green River Formation, Greater Green River Basin in Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah [ More info] Using the Fischer assay measure of oil yield, we estimated a total of 1.44 trillion barrels of oil in three assessed units. There is currently no economic method to recover oil from this geologic unit.
Decadal-scale changes in dissolved-solids concentrations in groundwater used for public supply [ More info] Recent increases in dissolved-solids concentrations in this aquifer have been documented in some areas used for public supply, raising concerns as to the sources and causes of the higher concentrations and the long-term effects on groundwater quality.
