The Wyoming Natural Diversity Database (WYNDD) maintains a computer database of the locations and biological characteristics of rare plants, rare animals, and important plant communities in Wyoming. The database is in a standard format used by the nationwide network of Natural Heritage programs. Location and biological information from the database is available to the public through data requests submitted to WYNDD.
The Water Resources Data System is a clearinghouse of hydrological and climatological data for the State of Wyoming. Land Slide data can be downloaded on a County basis via this interface.
Boreholes were drilled in 2017 and 2018 in Redwell Basin, a headwater catchment underlain by mineralized and hydrothermally altered sedimentary rock in the Elk Mountains near the town of Crested Butte, Colorado. Site locations and drilling procedures are documented under the main page of this data release. Borehole geophysical data were collected in boreholes MW1, MW1UZ, and MW2.1 as open holes prior to well construction. Logging was performed by a combination of USGS and Mount Sopris Instruments (MW1) and University of Wyoming (MW1UZ and MW2.1) staff. Log types vary by well on the basis of available equipment, site limitations, and borehole conditions. In borehole MW1, log types include fluid temperature and conductivity,...
The Water Resources Data System is a clearinghouse of hydrological and climatological data for the State of Wyoming. Funded from an allocation from the Wyoming Water Development Commission, the System offers a wide range of products and services to its users. As of 01 September 2001, the State Climatologist Office has been combined with WRDS in order to better integrate the functions of these two environmentally related disciplines.

The data source used to create the data was the U.S. Department of Transportation, Bureau of Tranportation Statistics, Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS): http://www.fars.nhtsa.dot.gov.
Hydrologic and geophysical data from high-elevation boreholes in Redwell Basin near Crested Butte, Colorado
Four boreholes (MW1, MW1UZ, MW2, MW2.1) were drilled in the fall of 2017 and summer of 2018 in upper Redwell Basin, a headwater catchment underlain by hydrothermally altered sedimentary rock in the Elk Mountains near the town of Crested Butte, Colorado. The boreholes were continuously cored using a wireline HQ-sized coring system and sample a combination of Quaternary-aged surficial colluvium and the Cretaceous-aged Mesaverde Formation. In-situ injection-based hydraulic tests were performed in MW1 and MW2 during drilling while advancing using a single-packer apparatus in tandem with an in-line flow meter and interval pressure monitoring. Borehole geophysical logging was performed in MW1, MW1UZ, and MW2.1 in the...

The Water Resources Data System is a clearinghouse of hydrological and climatological data for the State of Wyoming. The Climatology Data consists of queryable roadway weather information through the Wyoming DOT; tables and graphs of monthly precipitation normals and totals by water year; and maps and graphs of percent snow equivelants from the NRCS.
The Water Resources Data System is a clearinghouse of hydrological and climatological data for the State of Wyoming. The water quality database can be searched by latitude and longitude, township and range, state and county, or by station number or name. Data are available in CSV file format.
Contains ca 9000 points representing Wyoming collection sites for plant specimens in the collections of the Rocky Mountain Herbarium (RM). The point coverage is tied to a database of about 190,000 records representing about 1/4 of the holdings of the RM. Collection dates for these records range from the 1860's to 1997, and collections sites are located in general to the nearest section, although the locations of most sites are at best approximate.
