  • Evaluation of inversion strengths and mixing heights during extremely stable atmospheric stratification

    We have compiled data from Finnish sounding stations and classified the inversions according to their total depth and the stability of the boundary layer. We studied the persistence of the inversions and the influence of cloudiness and wind speed on the temperature gradient. Additionally, we addressed the specific problems of an urban area, using measurements from a meteorological mast situated ...

  • ADMS 5 Buildings Validation Bowline Point Site

    1 Introduction The Bojivline Point1 site is located in the Hudson River valley in New York State (Figure 1). There are two stacks of height 86.9 m, close to the western shore of the river. The emissions from the stacks were buoyant and varied hour by hour, and very close to the stacks there was a complex of buildings. The site itself was rural and the terrain ...

  • New methods for measuring the wind

    Although computer models of wind flow over terrain have improved dramatically in the past few years, there is still no substitute for data recorded at the site. So you want to build a wind farm. Good for you. With the global drive towards a low carbon economy, it is surely the right way to go for many individuals, companies and, indeed, Governments around the world. As information from the ...


  • Amassing Wind Information

    Wind is a variable resource, but not an indecipherable one. Second Wind encourages harnessing the full range of wind sensing technologies that are available today. When it comes to wind information, much attention is focused on the choice of wind measurement technology and data collection practices in wind resource assessment and project design. Right now, wind data plays a limited role in the ...


  • Measuring Offshore Wind Resources

    To select the right offshore wind site, estimate the future energy output of a wind farm, and determine the best layout for the turbines, project developers must conduct wind resource assessment (WRA) campaigns on site. This is a critical phase of the successful development of wind farms. WRA campaigns on terrestrial sites have traditionally been performed using meteorological towers equipped ...
