26 Miege, ClementRecent ice sheet snow accumulation and firn storage of meltwater inferred by ground and airborne radarsRecent surface mass balance changes in space and time over the polar ice sheets need to be better constrained in order to estimate the ice-sheet contribution to sea-level rise. The mass balance of any ice body is obtained by subtracting mass losses from mass gains. In response to climate changes of ...Antarctica; Aquifer; Firn; Greenland; Radar2015-08
27 Li, HanInstitutions, economic transition, and urban land expansion in chinaDuring the past three decades, China was experiencing a transitional economy driven by both the market and the state. At the same time, the economic transitions brought a tremendous urban land expansion in China and other transitional socialist countries,China; Economic Transition; Institutions; Urban Expansion2016
28 Smith, Gregory EDevelopment of a flash flood potential index using physiographic data sets within a geographic information systemA Flash Flood Potential Index (FFPI) grid representing hydrologic response characteristics to heavy rainfall was developed for use in the flash flood warning decision-making process. Physical and empirical relationships exist between rainfall infiltration into the soil and the physiographic properti...Flash flood; Storm runoff2010
29 Skiles, S; McKenzieInterannual variability in radiative forcing by desert dust in snowcover in the Colorado River BasinDust in snow accelerates snowmelt through its direct reduction of snow albedo and its further indirect reduction of albedo by accelerating the growth of snow effective grain size. Since the Anglo expansion into the western United States that began in the mid 19th century, the mountain snow cover of ...Colorado River Basin; Cryosphere; Snowmelt; Interannual variability2010
30 Li, DapengModeling wildfire evacuation as a coupled human-environmental system using triggersWildfire is a common hazard in the western U.S. that can cause significant loss of life and property. When a fire approaches a community and becomes a threat to the residents, emergency managers need to take into account both fire behavior and the expected response of the threatened population to wa...fire spread modeling; GIS; reverse geocoding; traffic simulation; triggers; wildfire evacuation2016
31 Bishop, Seth ArthurSpatial access and local demand for emergency medical services in utahEmergency Medical Services form the backbone of the prehospital emergency medical care system in the United States. Prompt treatment and transport to a definitive care facility provide the greatest chance for reduced morbidity and mortality. People’s ability to use this public service can be a...2SFCA; accessibility; ambulance; emergency medical service; floating catchment area; spatial access2016
32 Qi, YiNew physical foundations for remote sensing estimation of live fuel moisture content and fire dangerWildfire is a multifaceted, global phenomenon with ecological, environmental, climatic and socioeconomic impacts. Live fuel moisture content (LFMC) is a critical fuel property for determining fire danger. Previous research has used meteorological data and remote sensing to estimate LFMC with the goa...live fuel moisture content; remote sensing2014
33 Morris, Jesse LeeHistoric and holocene forest disturbance in South-Central UtahPaleoecological reconstructions provide important information regarding climate affects on vegetation and forest disturbance return intervals. In recent decades, bark beetles (Dendroctonus spp.) have rapidly and profoundly altered subalpine forest ecosystems across interior forests in western North ...Forest disturbance; Holocene; Dendroctonus; Engelmann spruce; Fire; Lake sediments; Picea; Spruce beetle2011-08

42 Pulver, Aaron ThomasLocating automated external defibrillator enabled medical drones to reduce response times to out-of-hospital cardiac arrestsOut-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OOHCA) is prevalent in the United States. Each year several hundred thousand people die due to cardiac arrest. The automated external defibrillator (AED) has greatly enhanced survival rates for OOHCA. However, one of the most important factors in successful resuscitat...backup coverage; geographic information systems; location modeling; medical drone; out-of-hospital cardiac arrest; spatial optimization2017
43 Farnham, Delanie RChild growth as a measure of resilience to food insecurity in burkina fasoWith the population steadily increasing, the demand for food is of great concern for many developing countries. Agrarian societies in developing nations are of particular concern because their food supply derives primarily from rain-fed agriculture. Increases in drought conditions and lower than ave...Burkina Faso; Childhood Malnutrition; Food Security; Quantile Regression; Resilience2017

45 Xiao, WeiyeWalkability, amenity, and physical activity: a study of salt lake countyWalking is regarded as the best moderate to vigorous physical activity (PA), which benefits people’s mental and physical health by decreasing obesity, increasing disease control, and relieving depression. Hence, promoting walkability is critical to sustainable development. In this thesis, we ...Social sciences2017
46 Unger, Corey DanielCreating spatial data infrastructure to facilitate the collection and dissemination of geospatial data to aid in disaster managementThe 2012 Great Utah Shakeout highlighted the necessity for increased coordination in the collection and sharing of spatial data related to disaster response during an event. Multiple agencies must quickly relay scientific and damage observations between teams in the field and command centers.

47 Van Drimmelen, Marquessa NixonFamily gathering in evacuations: a case-study of the 2007 Angora fireFor many years, modelers have simulated the characteristics of human behavior during evacuations in an effort to improve evacuation management. These simulations, however, rely on assumptions regarding individual and family spatial behavior patterns. This thesis examines spatial behavior in an emerg...Evacuation; Family gathering; Fire2010-08
48 Zhang, YuanA rangeland predictive phenological model for the upper Colorado River Basin and its web deliveryUnderstanding the spatially and temporally variant phenological responses and cycles can greatly assist the administrative planning, policy making and management in grazing, planting, and ecosystem conservation.
