Techniques of judiciously controlling or directing resources for a predetermined goal.
Assessing Groundwater Availability in the High Plains Aquifer in Parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming [ More info] Explains concepts and methods used to determine the likely future supply of usable water in this major aquifer.
Assessing rangelands [ More info] Fact sheet in Adobe PDF on assessing the health of rangeland by monitoring and inventory which can help land managers
Assessing the impact of urban sprawl on soil resources in the United States using nighttime "city lights" satellite images and digital soils maps [ More info] Paper from Land Use History of North America giving results of a study to estimate the extent of developed land in the United States and the impact of development on soil resources.
Assessing the Vulnerability of Public-Supply Wells to Contamination: Glacial Aquifer System in Woodbury, Connecticut [ More info] Sources and effects of contamination surrounding a single well in western Connecticut
Assessment of coal geology, resources, and reserve base in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming and Montana [ More info] We estimated in-place resources of 1.07 trillion short tons of coal in this area using a geology-based assessment methodology. Of that total, recoverable coal was 162 billion tons, 25 billion economically recoverable.
Assessment of Gas Hydrate Resources on the North Slope, Alaska, 2008 [ More info] We estimate that there are about 85 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of undiscovered, technically recoverable gas resources within gas hydrates in northern Alaska.
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.
Assessment of In-Place Oil Shale Resources of the Green River Formation, Piceance Basin, Western Colorado [ More info] We estimated a total of 1.525 trillion barrels of oil are in place in seventeen oil shale zones in this area using a geology-based assessment methodology.
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.
Assessment of Moderate- and High-Temperature Geothermal Resources of the United States [ More info] The electric power generation potential from identified geothermal systems is 9,057 Megawattselectric (MWe), distributed over 13 states. Undiscovered resources are estimated to provide an additional 30,033 MWe.
