We used camera traps to monitor the presence, distribution, abundance,...2017
3 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
4 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
5 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
6 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
7 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
8 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
9 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
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 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
