Dr. Thomas H. Daniel

Dr. Daniel has been involved in ocean research and development for 30 years. His career focus areas include: Ocean Measurements and Instrumentation, Ocean Acoustic and Electric Field, Ocean Energy Systems, Deep Ocean Water Utilization, Alternate Energy Options, Kona Oceanography, Environmental Monitoring and Regulation, and Healthcare System Maintenance and Governance. He was graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a B.S. degree in humanities and electrical engineering. He has a M.S. degree and a Ph.D. degree in physical oceanography from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Dr. Daniel was a Research Scientist at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (1975-1978) and at Lockheed Ocean Systems in Sunnyvale, California (1979-1982).
In 1982 he returned to Hawaii to take up the position of Laboratory Director of the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (NELHA) in Kailua-Kona, a post he occupied until 1989. In his role as Scientific/Technical Program Manager of NELHA (1990-2003), he managed the $20 million project that deployed the world's largest and deepest seawater intake pipeline at NELHA. The deployment was completed at 2% over the projected budget. This project was named as the Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement (OCEA) of 2002 by the Hawaii Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineer (ASCE). It was also nominated for the National OCEA Award. During his tenure as Program Manager of NELHA, Dr. Daniel served as Acting Executive Director in 1994 and from 1996 to 1997. He is a consultant for Oceanography and Ocean Energy and a member of the Research Advisory Board and the National Defense Center of Excellence for Research in Ocean Sciences (CEROS). He has been a prolific writer with a long list of publications on deep ocean water applications and has developed and presented numerous papers on the subject at international conferences. Since 2003 he has been the facility engineer and manager of the maintenance and biomedical instrumentation departments of the Kona Community Hospital in Kealakekua, Hawaii.
Dr. Daniel was a United States Peace Corps volunteer teacher in Cameroon, West Africa (1964-1966) and is presently involved in a variety of community activities.
