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.


Water-Quality Problems at NELH Laid to Cyanotech, Staff Cuts |

www.environment-hawaii.org [cached]

According to Tom Daniel, scientific and technical director at NELHA, the changes in water quality are not a problem.
"There was never any doubt that discharges into these trenches would have local effects on the groundwater," he says, "but that is not viewed as a problem, since there are no significant uses for that groundwater." The monitoring program is so important, Daniel says, that even in the face of staff cutbacks, monthly sampling of the wells continues. "Detection of the high nutrient levels in the wells near Cyanotech's operations has led to remediation and removal of the problems long before they could have any impact on the ocean," he told Environment Hawai'i - which translates not only into a benefit for the resources, but for Cyanotech as well, he noted. NPDES Violations Apart from the problems NELHA has had in its monitoring program, it has also had trouble complying with terms of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit issued by the state Department of Health. The Department of Health sent two letters to Daniel, one on April 10, 1997 and one on July 22, notifying him that NELHA has violated its NPDES permit by not submitting the required Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs). A February 21, 1995 letter from Daniel to the County of Hawai'i's Planning Department Director Virginia Goldstein explains, "The marine biota monitoring program, which includes benthic, midwater, and anchialine pond field surveys and census count, has been maintained at a high professional level through contracts with qualified University of Hawai'i researchers who have been performing the biota survey, we have determined that the frequency of these surveys should be reduced to twice per year. About a week later, Daniel responded. Daniel concluded, "We feel that it would be very unfortunate if declining budgets forced us to utilize less qualified researchers.

In 1912, the third hospital director, Dr. Thomas H. Daniel, built a clean, tidy 30-bed hospital which served well until it was destroyed by fire in 1935 while Dr. Lloyd K. Boggs was director.
