Universities and research organisations monitor the weather to gain knowledge, and factors like accuracy and precision become more important.
Weather scientists have studied windshear in depth, developing many mathematical models to describe it. Windshear is normally combined with turbulence, which can be described as a random three-dimensional movement of the wind. Turbulence is caused when the wind interacts with natural or man-made obstacles.Read More
WINDCRANE focuses on durability and heavy-duty applications, while providing the most common weather measurement options: wind speed, wind direction and temperature. However, additional inputs are available on request. It is also a user-friendly system that comes factory-configured and minimises installation time.Read More
Wind power is a gamble if the project site is not assessed properly prior to the installation of wind turbines; two identical units can have very different outputs depending on their locations. A very important factor that defines if the project makes sense from the financial standpoint is capacity factor – the percentage of maximum possible output the project will yield.
Wind power is an exact science, and carrying out a detailed feasibility analysis can make the difference between a project that is lucrative and one that fails to produce the required energy output. WindLogger offers an affordable wind measurement solution for small and medium-scale projects.
Understanding how microorganisms can thrive in extreme environments here on Earth could provide some insight on how to approach the search of extraterrestrial life.Read More
