Contains a compiled dataset of permeability measurements and a 12-page report that summarizes the compiled data. The dataset includes permeability measurements from both standard groundwater aquifer tests and a variety of drill stem tests from the oil and gas industry in Utah and the Great Basin and the adjoining states of Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico. All measurements compiled from these sources contain basic lithology, depth, and permeability information. The dataset contains 1188 permeability measurements: 588 measurements are from siliciclastic rocks, 250 measurements are from carbonate rocks, 253 measurements are from igneous rocks, and 97 measurements are from basin fill. Based on the compiled dataset both carbonate and siliciclastic rock units may have wellbore-scale permeability greater than 10 mD at depths of more than 2000 meters.
