  • Barometric Pressure

    Description: Barometric pressure is available as one- and thirty-minute averages for station pressure, which is determined from 0.1 Hz observations. Barometric pressure corrected to sea level and surface level (defined as water surface at aquatic sites and soil surface at terrestrial sites) is derived from station pressure averages and available at one- and thirty-minute increments. Observations are made by a single digital barometer located on the tower infrastructure and a single digital barometer located on the aquatic meteorological station.

  • Precipitation

    Description: Precipitation is observed using one of two sensors. Primary precipitation is observed using a weighing gauge housed within a small double fence intercomparison reference, which is generally located within 0.5 km of the tower infrastructure. Secondary precipitation is observed using a tipping bucket located on the top of the tower infrastructure. Ground level precipitation (also known as throughfall) is also observed using tipping buckets at 3 of 5 soil array locations. Bulk precipitation is determined at five- and thirty-minute intervals for primary precipitation and at one- and thirty-minute intervals for secondary precipitation. AIS sites only include Primary (DFIR at Core Aquatic sites; currently only 2 or 3) or Secondary (tipping buckets at relocatable sites; currently about 8). No AIS sites have both; no AIS sites have the equivalent of throughfall.

  • Wildfires

    Description: The Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (MTBS) Program assesses the frequency, extent, and magnitude (size and severity) of all large wildland fires (including wildfires and prescribed fires) in the conterminous United States (CONUS), Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico for the period of 1984 and beyond. All fires reported as greater than 1,000 acres in the western U.S. and greater than 500 acres in the eastern U.S. are mapped across all ownerships. MTBS produces a series of geospatial and tabular data for analysis at a range of spatial, temporal, and thematic scales and are intended to meet a variety of information needs that require consistent data about fire effects through space and time. This map layer is a vector polygon shapefile of the location of all currently inventoried fires occurring between calendar year 1984 and 2018 for CONUS, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Fires omitted from this mapped inventory are those where suitable satellite imagery was not available or fires were not discernable from available imagery.

  • Soil

    Description: The Soil dataset contains information about soil as collected by the National Cooperative Soil Survey over the course of a century. The information can be displayed in tables or as maps and is available for most areas in the United States and the Territories, Commonwealths, and Island Nations served by the USDA-NRCS. The information was gathered by walking over the land and observing the soil. Many soil samples were analyzed in laboratories. The maps outline areas called map units. The map units describe soils and other components that have unique properties, interpretations, and productivity. Each map unit may contain one to three major components and some minor components. The map units are typically named for the major components. Examples of information available from the database include available water capacity, soil reaction, electrical conductivity, and frequency of flooding; yields for cropland, woodland, rangeland, and pastureland; and limitations affecting recreational development, building site development, and other engineering uses.

  • Hydrocarbon Liquid Gas Pipeline

    Description: This dataset includes interstate trunk lines and selected intrastate lines. Based on publicly available data from a variety of sources with varying scales and levels of accuracy. Most of the Hydrocarbon Gas Liquids (HGL) produced in the United States is transported in pipelines from where they are produced to places where they are used or to places where they are stored for distribution. HGL are found in raw natural gas and crude oil. HGL are extracted from natural gas at natural gas processing plants and when crude oil is refined into petroleum products. Because HGL straddle the gas/liquid boundary, their versatility and high energy density in liquid form make them useful for many purposes: 1) Feedstock in petrochemical plants to make chemicals, plastics, and synthetic rubber, 2) Fuels for heating, cooking, and drying, 3) Fuels for transportation, 4) Additives for motor gasoline production, and 5) Diluent (a diluting or thinning agent) for transportation of heavy crude oil.

  • Future Climate

    Description: The Multivariate Adaptive Constructed Analogs (MACA) datasets are sets of gridded data that represent possible future projections of Earth's climate. The datasets include variables such as air temperature, specific humidity, wind speed/direction, and surface radiation for roughly 500,000 points across the US projected up to 80 years in the future (2100) at a daily temporal resolution. The data model two future scenarios, or Representative Concentration Pathways; one where an additional 4.5 W/m2 is trapped in the earth-atmosphere system by 2100 compared to preindustrial conditions (known as RCP4.5), and a more pessimistic scenario where an additional 8.5 W/m2 is trapped (known as RCP8.5). RCP4.5 roughly represents a future with moderate climate action and decreased emissions, while RCP8.5 represents a future with little intervention and high emissions.
    The MACA datasets are adapted from models called Global Climate Models (GCMs), which have been developed by various agencies and universities around the world. Each GCM models climate slightly differently and thus makes slightly different predictions - some, include atmospheric chemistry calculations, have different spatial resolutions, model ocean dynamics differently, and so on. The MACA statistical process was run on each of these models separately, resulting in 20 unique future climate datasets, each with an RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 version. This provides a diverse range of predictions that can be combined to create a more balanced and holistic vision of Earth's future.

  • Hurricane Evacuation Routes

    Description: A hurricane evacuation route is a designated route used to direct traffic inland in case of a hurricane threat. This dataset is based on supplied data from Gulf Coast and Atlantic Seaboard states. Each state was contacted by TGS to determine an official source for hurricane evacuation routes. GIS data was gathered from states willing to share such data. In cases where states were unable or unwilling to share data in this format, TGS requested that the states provide a source for identifying hurricane evacuation routes. The states usually identified a website that made this data available to the public. Three (3) states (ME, NY, and NH) indicated that they do not maintain public maps showing hurricane evacuation routes and were unable or unwilling to share GIS files depicting such routes. Hurricane evacuation routes depicted on non-GIS maps were digitized using aerial ortho imagery while referencing supplied maps. Shape files that depicted hurricane evacuation routes were edge matched and merged with the digitized evacuation routes. All routes identified as primary hurricane evacuation routes were included in this dataset. If a state also designated secondary hurricane evacuation routes, they were included as well. Routes depicted in this dataset are dependent upon what each state identified as a hurricane evacuation route. Criteria used to identify these routes may vary from state to state.

  • Public Refrigerated Warehouses

    Description: This data represents the locations of public refrigerated warehouses participating in the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW). The International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) came into existence in 1891 when a number of conventional warehousemen took on the demands of storing perishable food and soon realized the increased challenge and complexity of operating temperature controlled storage facilities. IARW's goals and activities have broadened considerably over the years. Today, in addition to collecting information and encouraging the exchange of ideas, the association aggressively promotes more efficient distribution services, aids members in adopting new technology, advises members of legislation and regulations affecting the food industry, assists members in complying with U.S. and international regulations, and participates in alliances with industry and international organizations having a common interest in the safe and efficient flow of food products around the world. All active members of IARW are also members and beneficiaries of the work of The World Food Logistics Organization.
