For Researchers

Our paper in Environmental Science and Technology presents the complete Hestia system with Indianapolis, Indiana as the case study. Future publications for the Los Angeles and Salt Lake City cases are in preparation.

We have completed our Salt Lake City Hestia data product and will be making it publicly available soon.

ASU now requires SFTP - this means you need an SFTP client. I use CyberDuck (Mac)
