We have developed a state-scale version of the MARKAL energy optimization model, commonly used to model energy policy at the US national scale and internationally. We apply the model to address state-scale impacts of a renewable electricity standard (RES) and a carbon tax in one southeastern state, Georgia. Biomass is the lowest cost option for large-scale renewable generation in Georgia; we find that electricity can be generated from biomass co-firing at existing coal plants for a marginal cost above baseline of 0.2-2.2 cents/kWh and from dedicated biomass facilities for 3.0-5.5 cents/kWh above baseline. We evaluate the cost and amount of renewable electricity that would be produced in-state and the amount of out-of-state...

Federal protected areas such as national parks and preserves and wildlife refuges cover large areas of the study area. Because of its remote location, few people visit the region for recreational use, and except for the Iditarod, activities are concentrated in the summer. Recreation in the region includes sport hunting, sport fishing, and general outdoor hiking and camping activities.

This map contains:Aquatic Intactness results for the State of Utah and the Colorado Plateau Ecoregion, HUC6/12-Digit HUC resolution.Aquatic Species Intactness results clipped to 22 different species' distributions, showing the AI status/condition for each of these species of interest in Utah and the COP. An experimental Aquatic Intactness model for the Escalante subregion, which tests a methodology to incorporate detailed/specialized datasets available for only a portion of the study site into the model without penalizing no-data areas in the final intactness score. The Escalante experimental model utilizes two additional themes: riparian vegetation conversion and grazing impact. Unfortunately Grand Staircase National...
