Annual average offshore wind speed for the Pacific Coast (California, Oregon, and Washington) at a 90 meter height. Available from NREL at http://www.nrel.gov/renewable_resources/ . This version was last updated on 8/23/2010.
Why did nuclear energy policies in France, Sweden, and the United States, very similar at the time of the oil crisis of 1973 and 1974, diverge so greatly in the following years? In answering this question, James Jasper challenges one of the most popular trends in political analysis: explanations relying exclusively on political and economic structures to account for public policies. Jasper proposes a new cultural and state-centered approach--one heeding not only structural factors but cultural meanings, individual biographies, and elite discretion. Surveying the period from the successful commercialization of light-water-reactor technology in the early 1960s to the present, he explains the events that occurred after...

This sampling frame is a set of grid-based, finite-area frames spanning the offshore areas surrounding the continental United States (CONUS), and is intended for use with the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat). A Generalized Random-Tessellation Stratified (GRTS) Survey Design draw was added to the sample units from the raw sampling grids (https://doi.org/10.5066/P9XBOCVV). The GRTS survey design algorithm assigns a spatially balanced and randomized ordering (GRTS order) to each cell within its respective framework. Grid cells are prioritized numerically; the lower the number, the higher the sampling priority. Cells can then be selected for monitoring following the GRTS order, ensuring both randomization...

This sampling frame is a set of grid-based, finite-area frames spanning the offshore areas surrounding Canada, the United States, and Mexico, and is intended for use with the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat). NABat is a continental collaboration including state and provincial, federal, and local agencies intended to standardize the collection and storage of bat data. Alaskan and Canadian waters are combined into a single grid. There are 5 grids in total: Alaska/Canada Offshore grid, Continental United States Offshore grid, Mexico Offshore grid, Hawaii Offshore Grid, and Caribbean Offshore grid. Grids boundaries are based on World Exclusive Economic Zone oceanic political boundaries and extend into the...

Alaskan Offshore Mining Leases and Prospecting Permits for locatable or potential locatable minerals on state-owned tide and submerged lands are offered for issuance if the DNR conducts a Disposal of Interest for a specific offshore area. If known locatable mineral deposits exist, the DNR conducts a competitive offshore lease disposal, otherwise a noncompetitive offshore prospecting permit disposal is held. Leases are issued for variable terms, up to indefinite if activity is occurring, and offshore prospecting permits are issued for a term of 10 years as long as adequate prospecting work in done each year. Permit acreage may be converted to lease at any time during the 10 years if workable mineral deposits are...

Identifies the location of (oil drilling) platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. All platforms existing in the database are included. Downloaded from http://www.gomr.mms.gov/homepg/pubinfo/repcat/arcinfo/index.html on June 15, 2010. Original metadata are minimal, but included here. MMS Disclaimer, from http://www.gomr.mms.gov/homepg/pubinfo/index1.html: This accessible computer data is from a working database which is derived by entering data from documents submitted to the Federal Government from oil companies, other Government Agencies, and/or the public.

A review of the four main wood energy sectors in the U.S. was conducted to explore historic trends and the impact of alternative energy prices and public policies on wood energy consumption. High oil prices have triggered the adoption of government regulation and financial incentives to promote greater use of wood energy over the last four decades. However, the amount of wood energy consumed in the U.S. industrial sector was driven mainly by the output of the pulp and paper products industry and not by energy prices or any particular public policy incentive. Residential consumption of wood energy was positively correlated with competing energy prices. Public policies seem to have had a greater impact on wood energy...
