Compilation of climate data from heterogeneous networks across the Hawaiian Islands

This paper provides: (1) a summary of the available climate data in Hawai‘i including a detailed description of the various meteorological observation networks and data accessibility, and (2) a quality-controlled meteorological dataset across the Hawaiian Islands for the 25-year period 1990-2014. The dataset draws on observations from 471 climate stations and includes rainfall, maximum and minimum surface air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, downward shortwave and longwave radiation data.

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.

ARS Water Database

The ARS Water Data Base is a collection of precipitation and streamflow data from small agricultural watersheds in the United States. This national archive of variable time-series readings for precipitation and runoff contains sufficient detail to reconstruct storm hydrographs and hyetographs. There are currently about 14,000 station years of data stored in the data base. Watersheds used as study areas range from 0.2 hectare (0.5 acres) to 12,400 square kilometers (4,786 square miles). Raingage networks range from one station per watershed to over 200 stations. The period of record for individual watersheds vary from 1 to 50 years. Some watersheds have been in continuous operation since the mid 1930's.
