1 Stratigraphy and paleontology of Norwood Tuff and Fowkes Formation: northeastern Utah and southwestern WyomingNelson, Michael Earl1971
2 How to Cut the Cost of Accurate and Reliable Surface Level Atmospheric Observations by an Order of MagnitudeDeFord, AlexisThe building temperature energy monitoring system (BTEMS) project addresses the need for low-cost devices to measure ambient air temperature, humidity, and surface temperature. These sets of data are key in studying heat transfer between a building and its surroundings and in increasing the area ove...
3 Evaluating the efficacy of regression and machine learning models to predict prehistoric land-use patternsYaworsky, PeterPredictive modeling in archaeology is critical to making informed land management decisions and answering key anthropological research questions. However, archaeological predictive modeling su#30;ers from several theoretical, empirical, and analytical problems. To address these shortcomings, we buil...2019
4 Multi-Objective Optimization - Waste Heat Recovery Systems in Food ProcessingLegorburu, Gabriel2019 ASHRAE Winter Conference
5 Modeling Temporal Variation in Externalities Related to Electricity Purchases for BuildingsPleve, Kaden; Smith, Amanda D.Presented at the Global Change and Sustainability Center Research Symposium
6 How life cycle greenhouse gas emissions change with metrics at urban scale and national scaleGhaemi, Zahra; Smith, Amanda D. Smith
7 Pilot study on how indoor environmental and physiological variables affect human thermal confortThomas, Jermy V.; Smith, Amanda D.Poster presented at GCSC Research Symposium, 2019.
8 How does climate change affect combined sewer overflow in a system benefiting from rainwater harvesting systems?Tavakol-Davani, Hessam; Goharian, Erfan; Hansen, Carly H.; Tavakol-Davani, Hassan; Apul, Defne; Burian, Steven J.Variability in precipitation caused by climate change can have a large impact on the performance of a water system, and therefore is an important input in hydrologic modeling. As part of a Long Term Control Plan, a model was developed in the US Storm Water Management Model based on data from the Cit...2017
9 Statistical modeling of watershed scale evapotranspirationDhungel, Sulochan; Barber, Michael E.This project develops a statistical model using estimates of evapotranspiration derived from remote sensing techniques to predict agricultural water consumption. With future climate data, this model can be used to predict future consumptive use2017
10 Public water supply: how much energy does it take?Sowby, Robert B.This study collected annual water use and energy use data from 109 water utilities in the United States. The effort is the first to compile a consistent dataset of city-scale water and energy observations that describes the electric loads associated with public water services.2017
11 Centennial Valley corridorCastillo-Rosado, Hector E.; Castillo, Miranda L.; O'Neil, Shanna; Keller, Annie; Haunga, TevaiCentennial Valley, Montana is a critical migration route for wildlife between Yellowstone National Park and the Northern Rockies, which is facing threats of habitat fragmentation and degradation due to poorly planned development. We used camera traps to monitor the presence, distribution, abundance,...2017
12 Disappearing nationsSilver, MayaThis study presents an exploration of the possible cultural impacts of climate change induced population displacement. The poster focuses on whole Pacific islands that will be become uninhabitable due to rising sea levels. Recommendations for reducing cultural erosion are included.2017
13 Can urbanization level of a place act as a predictor for water saving behavior?Tagore, Pratiti; Hinners, SarahUtah has the third highest per capita water use and is the second driest state in the United States. Understanding outdoor watering and adaptation of water saving behavior across an urban-rural gradient is the objective of this research.2017
14 The Beehive State: an intrastate passenger rail system for Utah using existing Union Pacific tracksChristensen, MikeThis study will examine the feasibility of establishing passenger rail routes within Utah, which would run on existing Union Pacific tracks2017
15 Community cooperation and resource management: survey and experimental evidence from rural Odisha, IndiaChowdhury, Joyita RoyThis study examines communal water use in rural India. It focuses on community projects that require collective action but involve strong free-rider incentives, in particular, maintaining irrigation infrastructure for local agriculture.2017
16 Modeling of thermal storage tank for heat recovery applicationsRahman, Aowabin; Fumo, Nelson; Smith, Amanda D.The goal of this research was to develop a mathematical model of a stratified thermal storage tank, which could be used as a screening tool to allow building designers and owners to determine size and configuration of a storage tank for operation with a distributed generation system.2017
17 Wind farm density and harvested power in very large wind farms: a low-order modelCortina, Gerard; Calaf, MarcThis project aims to develop a simplistic numerical model to determine the number of wind turbines that should be placed given a land extension, in order to maximize the power output as a function of different atmospheric stabilities2017
