  • RNLI Poole - Scarecrow Bio-Acoustic System installed at the RNLI in Poole

    Formed in 1824 by 'pulling together' the disparate sea rescue organisations based around the coast of Britain, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution is now one of the most efficient and highly respected bodies of its kind anywhere in the world. Such is its professionalism and profile that it is a complete surprise to many that it remains a publicly funded charity, staffed largely by volunteer ...

  • On the application of miniSoDAR technology to wind energy

    Introduction In the late 1990’s wind turbines with nacelle heights exceeding 60 meters were introduced to the wind energy community. Initially, wind prospecting and siting studies continued to use 50-meter wind towers and extrapolate the measurement to the nacelle heights. It was quickly determined that this approach was not sufficient for the placement of these tall turbines. The next ...

  • Advanced offshore measurements to support wind energy production, weather forecasting, and emergency response

    Sonoma Technology, Inc. (STI), with support from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, is leading a unique partnership of corporate, government, and university researchers to develop a marine environmental observations program in the Gulf of Mexico. The primary goal of this project is to develop a framework of advanced offshore measurements to support emergency response, oil and gas exploration ...

  • miniSODAR

    The miniSODAR is a high-frequency Doppler sodar system that was designed to measure the atmospheric wind profile from 15 meters to 150/200 meters (data is often available to 250 meters) in 5-meter increments. It operates by generating a short tone burst (30 ms to 100 ms) in the frequency range of 4 kHz to 6 kHz. It monitors the low-level acoustic signal echoed by the atmosphere. The echo is ...
