**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
Download 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 at some sites during some winters.
All wintertime chemical and meteorological data from Horsepool, Roosevelt, and Castle Peak, 2011-present
Download a dataset containing chemical and meteorological data collected at Horsepool and Roosevelt, including each winter from 2011-12, and data collected at Castle Peak starting with winter 2017-18.
Uinta Basin ambient organic compound concentrations
Long-term Monitoring Stations
We collect speciated organic compound concentrations at our Horsepool, Roosevelt, and Castle Peak monitoring stations, and have collected samples at other stations periodically.
- Download a dataset of organic compound concentrations.
- Much of these data are also available in the EPA air toxics database. You can find it on the EPA website. Click on Utah, and it will download a Microsoft Access database with all available data for the state, including ours. For more information about the dataset.
Portable Sampling Stations
Also, we deployed ambient air sample collection tripods around the Uinta Basin during 2019 and 2020. The tripods collected samples that we analyzed for a suite of hydrocarbons, alcohols, and carbonyls. Information about how these data were collected and analyzed is available in Section 5 of our 2019 Annual Report. Download a dataset of all finalized data.
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. Download example images and videos, as well as an anonymized dataset. Download a peer-reviewed publication relating to these data.
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. 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.
We measured elemental and oxidized mercury via a dual-channel technique near Broomfield, Colorado during Summer, 2018. Download the dataset.
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.
