  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Improved wet weather wastewater influent modelling at Viikinmäki WWTP by on-line weather radar information

    Municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) influent is typically dependent on diurnal variation of urban production of liquid waste, infiltration of stormwater runoff and groundwater infiltration. During wet weather conditions the infiltration phenomenon typically increases the risk of overflows in the sewer system as well as the risk of having to bypass the WWTP. Combined sewer infrastructure ...

  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • Solar Streetlights in Extreme Weather

    Nature is brimming with its different forces. They are all meant for good but can have a damaging effect on other items that it comes into contact with. Take for example anything that is outside but is not natural. It can easily get damaged by water and get rusty. Even natural things can be blown away or struck down by the very same beautiful nature. It is very easy to assume that ...

  • Monitoring weather and climate from space

    State of the art weather forecasting, which has become an essential part of everyday life in Europe, would be almost  unthinkable without the reliable operational service delivered by Europe’s meteorological satellite organisation – EUMETSAT. The high-quality data and images are especially relevant in the context of severe weather situations and eather-related natural disasters. They are ...

  • 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 ...


  • How well is clean energy weathering the recession?

    The clean energy industry may not be popping the champagne cork, but it is at least holding the bottle in hand. While not unscathed by the recession, the industry sees growth in several sectors, according to recent reports. For example, use of smart meters—a key technology for better energy management and efficiency – is increasing at a rapid clip. A study by ABI Research, “Advanced Metering ...

  • 5 Growing Extreme Weather Threats to America’s Cities

    Weather events have been dominating the news recently thanks to the “polar vortex” that caused record cold temperatures across the nation. But just a few months ago, the news was filled with other events: record rain and flooding in Colorado; destructive tornadoes in Oklahoma; widespread drought in the Southwest; and the sluggish recovery from Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey. Unlike ...

  • Significance of Landscape Age, Uplift, and Weathering Rates to Ecosystem Development

    The combined roles of chemical and physical weathering have profound effects on the development of terrestrial ecosystems. Landscapes which are tectonically active are rapidly denudated and continually produce nutrient solutes from fresh bedrock. The chemical weathering yields are related to climate, but also to geologic factors such as uplift rates. Long-term nutrient production and the phase of ...

  • How better weather forecasting can help stretch water supplies

    Reservoir managers look to storm predictions to make smarter choices about dam operations Last year, New York City faced an unusual situation. An epic winter in the city’s Delaware River watershed brought heavy snow and very little rain. Stubborn cold meant there was no snowmelt to refill water-supply reservoirs, even as the city’s 9.5 million residents were draining them dry. A ...
