  5. Market-mediated environmental impacts of biofuels

    18 Jan 2022 | Publications | Contributor(s): Lan Zhao, Carol Song, Larry Biehl

    This paper surveys the evidence on market-mediated environmental impacts of biofuels, with special attention to the indirect greenhouse gas emissions stemming from land cover change in the wake of increased demand for biofuel feedstocks. We find clear evidence that market mediated land use...

  11. Metadata for Climate Research Unit Time Series (CRU TS) 2.1

    18 Jan 2022 | Downloads

    The CRU TS 2.1 data-set comprises 1224 monthly grids of observed climate, for the period 1901-2002, and covering the global land surface at 0.5 degree resolution. There are nine climate variables available: daily mean, minimum and maximum temperature, diurnal temperature range, precipitation, wet...

  12. Metadata for Harvested Area and Yields of 175 crops (M3-Crops Data)

    18 Jan 2022 | Downloads

    This data collection is composed of land use data sets, generated by combining national, state, and county level census statistics along with a global data set of croplands from countries around the world for the year 2000. The resulting land use data sets depict circa the year 2000 the...

  13. Metadata for Indiana Stream Flow Data

    18 Jan 2022 | Downloads

    The United States Geological Survey (USGS) daily streamflow dataset is the source of this dataset. Streamflow data are subjected to human interference, and therefore data contain both natural and regulated flows. This practice does not cause serious problems in flood frequency analysis (flows are...

    18 Jan 2022 | Downloads

    This dataset is composed of plots of historical time series of average precipitation (measured in inches) and temperature (measured in fahrenheit degrees) data with five year tendencies for each climate division (CD) within Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Data are...

  18. A seasonal-scale climatological analysis correlating spring tornadic activity with antecedent fall–winter drought in the southeastern United States

    18 Jan 2022 | Publications

    Using rain gauge and satellite-based rainfall climatologies and the NOAA Storm PredictionCenter tornado database (1952–2007), this study found a statistically significant tendency forfall–winter drought conditions to be correlated with below-normal tornado days the followingspring in north...

  19. A copula-based joint deficit index for droughts

    18 Jan 2022 | Publications

    Current drought information is based on indices that do not capture the joint behaviors of hydrologic variables. To address this limitation, the potential of copulas in characterizing droughts from multiplevariables is explored in this study. Starting from the standardized index (SI) algorithm, a...
