**If you use data collected by our research team in any presentation or publication, regardless of how you obtained it, we ask that you first obtain permission from the person in our team who generated the data, and then explicitly acknowledge the source of the data (the person and the institution) in your presentation or publication. We love to share our data and love it when other people use it, but we do like to get credit for it.
Wintertime ozone in the Uintah Basin
Wintertime ozone data from all monitoring stations that operate around the Uintah Basin. The number and location of stations has changed from year to year. Data were obtained from a variety of sources, including USU, the EPA AQS database, private companies, and the U.S. Forest Service. We usually classify November 15 through March 15 as the winter season, though the duration of measurements has varied from that range at some sites during some winters.
All wintertime chemical and meteorological data from Horsepool, Roosevelt, and Castle Peak, 2011-2019
Download a dataset containing chemical and meteorological data collected at Horsepool and Roosevelt, including each winter from 2011-12 through 2018-19, and data collected at Castle Peak starting with winter 2017-18.
Roosevelt, Horsepool, and Castle Peak dataset
Uinta Basin ambient organic compound concentrations
We collect speciated organic compound concentrations at our Horsepool, Roosevelt, and Castle Peak sites. Much of these data are available in the EPA air toxics database. You can find it here. Click on Utah, and it will download a Microsoft Access database with all available data for the state, including ours. Information about the dataset is available here.
Optical gas imaging survey of Uinta Basin oil and gas wells
We used an optical gas imaging camera to conduct a survey of emission sources at oil and gas wells. You can download example images and videos, as well as an anonymized dataset, here: https://doi.org/10.1525/elementa.381.s2. A peer-reviewed publication relating to these data is available here.
Emissions of hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide from natural gas well pad soils
We worked over several years to characterize emissions from soils around natural gas wells in eastern Utah. You can access an anonymized version of the dataset we have collected here: http://digitalcommons.usu.edu/all_datasets/25/. The link also contains a README file with information about the dataset, including how the data were collected, units of measurement, etc. A peer-reviewed publication relating to these data is available here.
Emissions of Organic Compounds from Produced Water Ponds
We completed a project to measure emissions of organics from produced water ponds in Utah and Wyoming. You can access an anonymized version of the dataset we have collected here: https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/all_datasets/35/. The link also contains a README file with information about the dataset, including how the data were collected, units of measurement, etc. A peer-reviewed publication relating to these data is available here.
Wyoming Pond Emissions Calculator (WYPEC)
WYPEC is an Excel-based calculator that estimates organic compound emissions to the atmosphere from produced water ponds based on pond characteristics, meteorology, and the water concentrations of organic compounds. WYPEC is based on hundreds of direct measurements of emissions from produced water ponds in Wyoming and Utah. Download reports about that work here and here. Download WYPEC here.
