Groundwater level recovery in the sandstones of the Lower Tertiary aquifer system of the Powder River Basin, Wyoming

K.G. Taboga, J.E. Stafford & J.R. Rodgers
RI-78
This study uses groundwater data collected by the Bureau of Land Management to examine groundwater level responses in the Tertiary sandstone aquifers associated with coalbed natural gas production in the Powder River Basin. Wyoming. The type, magnitude and timing of water level responses are evaluated. Changes in groundwater levels are analyzed as they relate to the depth and vertical distance of monitored sandstone aquifers from CBM producing coal seams. The report also includes estimations of...

Autonomous Swarms for Extreme Conditions (ASEC)

Bailey Richard Norman, Nic Robinson, Trey Jennings & Garrett Burrows
Swarms consist of numerous entities that work together to achieve an objective. There are twobroad schools of swarms, centralized and decentralized, which refers to the method of organizationemployed by the swarm. With the abundance and readiness of modern processing equipment, mostmodern swarms use a centralized model where control and instructions converge at one point, usually ata controller station. While practical, the centralized model opens the door for problems that can beavoided with some compromise by...

Trace element geochemistry of coal deposits in the Adaville and Frontier formations, Kemmerer coal field, Wyoming

K.S. Kehoe, G.W. Gay & J.C. Dewey
OFR-2022-1

This report shares the results of trace element analyses from select coals and associated deposits in the Adaville and Frontier formations in the Kemmerer coal field of western Wyoming. More than 60 samples of coals, shales, partings, and other associated lithologies were collected and analyzed. To improve understanding of trace element distribution within coal deposits, sampling targeted exposures where a series of samples could be collected from discrete positions within a coal and its bounding...

Accessing Funding for Wildlife Migration Projects

Kimber Logan, Travis Brammer, Hannah Mink & Bryce Nichols
The conservation of big game migration corridors is critical to the longevity of the species that utilize those corridors. In Wyoming, wildlife species, and big game species specifically, are essential to the state’s economy and sense of identity. To protect corridors, states and local governments rely heavily on funding from their own budgets. A comprehensive strategy will require more support from federal funding sources, to reduce the burden on state and local coffers. This project...

Digital Reconstruction and Preliminary Rock Art Inventory of the Greybull South Site, Wyoming

Charles Koenig, Amanda Castañeda, Marieka Arksey & Chad Everett Hutchens
In 1962 at least 10 rock art blocks were removed from the Greybull South (48BH92) petroglyph site located along the Bighorn River in northwest Wyoming. These 10 blocks were transported to what is now the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. In 2017 the University of Wyoming Archaeological Repository under the direction of the Office of the Wyoming State Archaeologist partnered with the Draper Natural History Museum, the Plains Indian Museum, the University of Wyoming...

Cody Community Interdisciplinary Unit

Sydney Pomajzl
As an elementary educator, one of the greatest day-to-day challenges is covering all of the standards while still making learning fun and engaging. Additionally, rigorous standards demand a focus on math and ELA (English language arts), which in turn creates less time in the classroom for concepts such as social studies and science. So, what’s the solution? The short answer is that there is no one- size-fits-all solution for educators. Every class presents a unique...

Residential Home Design

Vinaya Cauvery Palecanda
The main goal of this Honors Capstone project was to design a hypothetical residential home in Paradise Valley, Montana with a concentration on detailed design of the project’s structural systems. As a structural engineer, residential home design is a process that I needed to become familiar with, and this project required that I lay out a structural system for a building based on architectural plans, determine the design loads acting on the structure, trace the...

Effective Planning for Inclusive Recreation

Kimber Logan, Erick Franz Hughes & Trevor Thorvaldson
As visitation has increased, there has been a parallel increase in demand for access—information access and physical access. Included in this conversation is minority access to public lands. The ratio of white visitors to other visitors of public lands is disproportionate when compared to the racial demographics of America as a whole. Most of the studies and data that we found suggest that minorities do not culturally associate with public lands. As visitation and use...
