  • A silver lining to the Copenhagen cloud?

    Although December’s UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen was widely portrayed as a failure, some speakers at an MIT panel discussion on Friday, Feb. 5, suggested that its results actually represent real progress in the world’s efforts to head off the dangers of climate change — and that in fact the results may have been better, in the long run, than an outcome that most people would have ...

  • Managing Nuclear Information in the Cloud

    The burden of data management for the nuclear power industry is second only to that of managing nuclear material itself. For utilities operating nuclear power plants, deploying a centralized environmental management system to the “Cloud,” and housing all of their data in it, is offering unprecedented opportunities for better monitoring, aggregating and reporting of data. Aggregating ...

  • New climatology on clouds and radiation from weather satellite data

    The properties and distribution of clouds around the globe are important to climate research. There is now a 28-year compilation of clouds and radiation – a cloud climatology – based on data from polar satellites. The Earth’s climate is largely determined by incoming solar radiation. Clouds help to reflect some of the radiation away. “Roughly 30 per cent of the ...

  • NREL data set shows clouds` effects on solar power
