This data release contains the boundaries of assessment of undiscovered continuous tight-gas resources in the Mesaverde Group and Wasatch Formation, Uinta-Piceance Province, Utah and Colorado. The Assessment Unit is the fundamental unit used in the National Assessment Project for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources. The Assessment Unit is defined within the context of the higher-level Total Petroleum System. The Assessment Unit is shown herein as a geographic boundary interpreted, defined, and mapped by the geologist responsible for the province and incorporates a set of known or postulated oil and (or) gas accumulations sharing similar geologic, geographic, and temporal properties within the Total...

Accurate and consistent estimates of shrubland ecosystem components are crucial to a better understanding of ecosystems condition in arid and semiarid lands. We developed an innovative approach by integrating multiple information to quantify shrubland components as continuous field products within the National Land Cover Database (NLCD). The approach consists of five major parts: field sample collection, high-resolution mapping of shrubland components using WorldView-3 imagery and regression tree models, Landsat 8 radiometric balancing and phenological mosaicking, coarse resolution estimate of shrubland components across a large geographic extent using Landsat 8 phenological mosaics and regression tree models, and...

North American sagebrush-steppe ecosystems have decreased by about 50 percent since European settlement. As a result, sagebrush-steppe dependent species, such as the Gunnison sage-grouse, have experienced drastic range contractions and population declines. Coordinated ecosystem-wide research, integrated with monitoring and management activities, is needed to help maintain existing sagebrush habitats; however, products that accurately model and map sagebrush habitats in detail over the Gunnison Basin in Colorado are still unavailable. This research employs a combination of methods, including (1) modeling sagebrush rangeland as a series of independent objective components that can be combined and customized by any...

The data release encapsulates geospatial data in support of the regional scale study, Coal Geology and Assessment of Coal Resources and Reserves in the Little Snake River coal field and Red Desert assessment area, Greater Green River Basin, Wyoming. The assessment area covers about 2,300 square miles of the Eastern portion of the 15,400 square mile Greater Green River Basin in Southwestern Wyoming. This release includes geospatial data for the study area boundary, depth to coal, thickness of coal, outcrops and reliability. These data were compiled from numerous sources, the primary one being a database of point data that resides in a separate data release.

The Candy Lane 1 (CL-1) core was acquired in November 2005 as part of a multidisciplinary effort by the U.S. Geological Survey, the Bureau of Land Management, and the Bureau of Reclamation to investigate the Mancos Shale in the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area, Montrose County, Colorado. The Upper Cretaceous Mancos core was taken from the NE 1/4 sec. 8, T. 50 N., R. 9 W. corresponding to approximately lat 38.61717° N., long 107.90174° W. The CL-1 core contains part of the lower portion of the Mancos Shale Formation; Mancos Formation members in ascending order include the Bridge Creek Limestone (partial), Fairport, Blue Hill, Juana Lopez, Montezuma Valley, and Niobrara (partial). After coring was completed,...

This file contains 18 gross isopach grids that represent true vertical thickness (TVT) values by calculating the difference between 19 stratigraphically adjacent horizons picked on borehole geophysical logs in the Southwestern Wyoming Province. In wells where adjacent horizons are missing, no TVT value is calculated. The TVT values are a measure of vertical thickness and do not account for the structural dip of units encountered in the wellbore. The 19 stratigraphic horizons include: top Almond Formation (base Lewis Shale), top lower Lewis Shale (base Asquith marker), top Asquith marker, top flooding surfaces F1-15, and top Fox Hills Sandstone. For more detailed stratigraphic information, please see the associated...

This file contains 15 net sand isopach grids that represent the summed true vertical thickness (TVT) of sand intervals between 15 stratigraphically adjacent horizons picked on borehole geophysical logs in the Southwestern Wyoming Province. In wells where adjacent horizons are missing, no TVT value is calculated. The TVT values are a measure of vertical thickness and do not account for the structural dip of units encountered in the wellbore. The 15 stratigraphic horizons are the tops of 15 regional flooding surfaces F1-15. Net Sand was determined by normalizing gamma ray logs and using a cut-off of 85 API units and then summing each interval. For more detailed stratigraphic information, please see the associated...

A detailed description of the methodology employed to perform a geology-based assessment of in-place oil shale and nahcolite resources in the Piceance Basin of northwestern Colorado is presented here. Considerable advancements in computer and database technology since the previous oil shale assessment in 1989 provided the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) assessment team with new tools to convert legacy data, store and manipulate new data, perform calculations, and quantify, report, and display the assessment results. Relational database and geographic information systems (GIS) software were used seamlessly to streamline the storage and manipulation of the data. A deterministic spatial interpolation method, the Radial...
