North-northwest shortening across Laramide structures in the southeastern Uinta Mountains, Colorado and Utah
Contributor:Gregson, Joe Denny
The Rocky Mountain foreland consists of a series of anastomosing structural arches that vary greatly in trend. Several previous studies of Laramide faulting document predominantly northeast-southwest shortening that is ...
Llama use on public lands
Contributor:Arndt, Cheryl Anne
Interest in utilizing llamas as packstock is affecting natural resource managers as requests to use llamas on federally-owned lands increases. To adopt effective management practices related to issues raised by this ...
Two-stage development of the Wind River Basin, Wyoming : Laramide shortening followed by post-Laramide regional extension, localized backsliding, and arch collapse
Contributor:Thompson, Ryan Curtis
This study addressed mechanisms and timing of fracture development in basement-involved foreland basins. Fracture analyses were used to test hypotheses for the structural development of the Wind River Basin in central ...
Timing and genesis of fractures in the Niobrara Formation, northeastern Front Range and Denver Basin, Colorado
Contributor:Allen, Cody Lee
Naturally-occurring fractures in foreland basins, particularly in self-sourced resource plays, are critical to the production of hydrocarbons from low permeability reservoirs. Both shear and extensional fractures commonly ...
Measuring changes in areal extent of historic wetlands at Great Sand Dunes National Monument, Colorado 1936-1995
Contributor:Hammond, David J.
Great Sand Dunes National Monument (GRSA) is a unit of the National Park system in south central Colorado. With funding from the Colorado Historical Society, a series of studies were undertaken for an environmental history ...
Measurement of snowpack properties using active FM-CW microwave systems
Contributor:Farr, John Merritt
This paper reports on the use of an FM-CW active microwave system, in a research mode, to remotely sense water equivalence and liquid water content of snowpacks. A three-component "electrical path length" dielectric mixture ...
Methodology for estimating detectable change in water quality due to prescribed fire in northern Colorado, A
Contributor:Lange, Robert William
Increases in nutrients and metals in receiving waters have been documented after wildfire. However, water quality impacts from prescribed fire are not well known. This research investigated the design of a post-fire water ...
Predicting stream temperatures for native fish habitat management in White River National Forest, Colorado
Contributor:Laurel, DeAnna Jean
Stream temperature is a critical habitat parameter for many cold-water fish, particularly the salmonids family that includes trout. Colorado River cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii pleuriticus), a native fish in the ...
Instream wood loads and channel complexity in headwater Southern Rocky Mountain streams under alternative states
Contributor:Gonzalez, Bridget Livers
Small, forested streams are symbiotic with riparian processes, and thus land use changes to their riparian forests can have lasting effects on stream channel form and function. The first part of this dissertation evaluates ...
Relationship between measured soil properties, site-specific management zones, and bare soil reflectance : Colorado, USA, The
Soil productivity varies across farm fields and it is influenced by soil physical and chemical properties. Bare soil imagery can be used to delineate areas of homogeneous soil characteristics, based on variations in ...
