Evaporation critical to coronavirus transmission as weather changes

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, it is increasingly urgent to understand how climate impacts the spread of the coronavirus, particularly as winter virus infections are more common and the northern hemisphere will soon see cooler temperatures. Researchers studied the effects of relative humidity, environmental temperature, and wind speed on the respiratory cloud and virus…

California offshore winds show promise as power source

One of the challenges of moving toward fully renewable energy in California by 2045 is matching production to demand. Consumer demand peaks in the evening when solar energy is no longer available. Offshore wind energy has the potential to help meet this demand. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Wind Energy News

Simulating wind farm development

Engineers have devised a model to describe how, in the process of establishing wind farms, interactions between developers and landowners affect energy production costs. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Wind Energy News

Supercomputing future wind power rise

First detailed study of scenarios for how wind energy can expand to 20 percent of total US electrical supply by 2030. Results showed expansion of installed capacity makes small impact on efficiency and local climate by deploying next generation, larger wind turbines. Improved calculations of US wind resources can ensure better decision making and a…

New bio-inspired wing design for small drones

Taking a cue from birds and insects, researchers have come up with a new wing design for small drones that helps them fly more efficiently and makes them more robust to atmospheric turbulence. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Wind Energy News
