Animal Transportation Database for Beef Cattle

    Currently, there are inaccuracies in the energy use and greenhouse gas emission estimates of cattle transport reported by LCA studies because of their simplistic assumptions. The purpose of this database is to provide the necessary data for accurate estimation of the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions associated with cattle transport. The database has 28 different trailers under three categories namely pot belly, gooseneck, and bumper pull. It describes space available (length and width), maximum weight allowed in the trailer, along with a compatible vehicle that can haul the trailer. Gross vehicle weight, maximum payload allowed, and fuel use are available for the compatible vehicle. Using this database one can directly identify the number of cattle of a particular weight category that can be transported in a particular trailer-vehicle combination. This database also helps to identify economical and eco-friendly ways to transport cattle.

    Feedstock Readiness Level Evaluations Summary Table v4.1

      The table in this dataset collates the results of the FSRL evaluations listed under the Farm2Fly Ag Data Commons datasets to enable users to quickly identify, review, and compare available evaluations. Feedstock readiness level evaluations are performed for a specific feedstock-conversion process combination and for a particular region. FSRL evaluations complement evaluations of Fuel Readiness Level (FRL) and environmental progress.

        Feedstock Readiness Level (FSRL) evaluation: Eucalyptus grandis, Alcohol-to-Jet, Hawaii, June 2018

          Feedstock readiness level evaluations are performed for a specific feedstock-conversion process combination and for a particular region. FSRL evaluations complement evaluations of Fuel Readiness Level (FRL) and environmental progress. The data from this evaluation, compiled in June 2018, assesses the maturity of *Eucalyptus grandis* (eucalyptus), as a feedstock for the Alcohol-to-Jet conversion process in the United States Hawaii region.

          Feedstock Readiness Level (FSRL) evaluation: Saccharum officinarum (sugarcane), SIP and Alcohol-to-Jet, Hawaii, June 2018

            Feedstock readiness level evaluations are performed for a specific feedstock-conversion process combination and for a particular region. FSRL evaluations complement evaluations of Fuel Readiness Level (FRL) and environmental progress. The data from this evaluation, compiled in June 2018, assesses the maturity of *Saccharum officinarum* (sugarcane), as a feedstock for the the Hydroprocessed Fermented Sugars to Synthetic Isoparaffins (HFS-SIP) and/or Alcohol-to-Jet conversion process in the United States Hawaii region.

            Wildland Urban Interface Project Maps

              For each map listed, we provided an Adobe Acrobat file (PDF), a compressed Postscript file (ZIP) for plotter output, and metadata files in both HTML and text formats. Short descriptions of each map are available in the abstract portion of the metadata files.
