Dr. Giambelluca is a professor in the Department of Geography at UH Mānoa specializing in climate, climate change, and ecohydrology. As the Principal Investigator of the project, he supervised all aspects of the work.
Dr. Shuai is a post-doctoral researcher for this project. He designed the data fusion approach of cloud frequency mapping to integrate GOES and MODIS satellite imagery. He was in charge of Matlab coding and mapping of solar radiation, albedo, leaf area index, land surface temperature, wind speed, soil heat flux, and evapotranspiration of the Hawaiian Islands.
Mallory recently completed her M.S. degree at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management. She processed the MODIS cloud cover data and generated the cloud climatology maps for Hawai‘i.
Dr. Randall J. Alliss, an atmospheric scientist at Northrop Grumman, participated in the project by providing a high resolution climatology of GOES derived clouds over the Hawaiian Islands. The cloud analysis spanned the years 1997 - 2011. This climatology was broken down by time of day in order to feed the evapotranspiration calculations.
Ryan is a PhD student studying climatology at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in the Department of Geography. He worked on the development of the clear-sky radiation used to calculate solar and net radiation. He collected and analyzed climatic data from around the state that was used for the model and validation.
Dr. Miura is an assistant professor in GIS, remote sensing, and spatial analysis in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management at UH Mānoa. Co-Principal Investigator of the project, he developed and implemented the statistical framework for mapping rainfall by fusing rainfall gages, radar, PRISM, MM5, and vegetation analysis.
Dr. Chen is an associate professor in the Department of Geography at UH Mānoa. He assisted in the GIS, remote sensing, statistical fusion, and ET modeling aspects of this project.
Abby is a PhD student studying climatology at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in the Department of Geography. She processed the final map files, produced map images, extracted validation data for station locations, and coordinated the website development for this project.
Ryan is a PhD student in the Department of Geography at UH Mānoa. His contribution included developing a methodology for evaluating heat storage in biomass and air in the boundary layer, as well as maintaining meteorological stations used for validation.
Lan Cuo received her PhD in Geography at UH Mānoa and is now a professor in the Institute for Tibetan Plateau Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing. She helped to develop the air temperature and relative humidity maps used in this project.
Aaron is an undergraduate student at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. For this project, he helped to process the final map files and upload to the website.
Kohei Miyagi is a cyberinfrastructure technician for the Hawaiʻi Geospatial Data Repository of the EPSCoR Hawaiʻi. He has a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. He manages web, database, and GIS servers that host the Evapotranspiration Atlas and Rainfall Atlas of Hawaiʻi.
Michael Best is a software developer for the EPSCoR Hawaiʻi Cyberinfrastructure team at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. He has a B.S. in Computer Science from North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. Michael designed and built the Evapotranspiration Atlas web application.
