Originally deployed in Australia, the next-generation aerosol observing system (AOS) system returned to Brookhaven National Laboratory this summer for an invigorating makeover. With instrument, computer, and infrastructure systems rearranged and updated, and a fresh coat of paint, she is ready to go back out into the field as part of ARM's new Eastern North Atlantic (ENA) site! The AOS left Brookhaven on its journey to Graciosa Island in the Azores where it will obtain in situ measurements of aerosols and their optical properties as part of the new ARM Climate Research Facility fixed site in the Eastern North Atlantic.

Three of us from ProSensing recently made a trip to Manus Island in Papua New Guinea to perform some upgrades to two ARM radars. We made a few interesting discoveries. In 2011, the ARM zenith cloud radar Ka-band antenna was replaced, and the old antenna was scrapped. As seen in the picture, the local villagers salvaged the scrapped antenna and are now using it to collect rain water for the community. The rain water drains off the roof of the house into the antenna, serving as a catch basin. When we told the property owner what a brand new antenna costs, he had a good laugh.

Larry Kleinman and Arthur Sedlacek are atmospheric chemists from the Brookhaven National Laboratory, spearheading BBOP. Today marks the conclusion of the field measurement phase of our Biomass Burning Observation Project (BBOP) campaign. In just under 4 months, we sampled 17 wildfires, more than 2 dozen agricultural burns and a handful of urban emissions, which we used as a contrasting data set. By conducting an aircraft measurement campaign that uniquely targeted near-field biomass burning aerosols, we have collected an important data set that will contribute to our community a process-level understanding of how these aerosols evolve and their forcing impact.

Bookmark and Share The images in this post are graphic and could very well be those of me on a boat. Eight years ago, as a first-year graduate student, I was participating in a week-long oceanographic research cruise just off the coast of southern California. A severe case of seasickness rendered me so nauseous and incapable of work that I decided never to set foot on a boat again-and I haven't so far. Hopefully, this will not be the fate for several instruments that participated in their first-ever marine operation last fall.

One of its first sites-now sprawling over 143,000 square kilometers and harboring 33 suites of sophisticated instruments-is in Oklahoma. Around the same time, a man working by himself was designing and building his own weather-measuring probes and driving them around in a truck. For the next twenty years, Tim Samaras would log close to 56,000 kilometers each year, driving across the prairies during peak tornado season. Early in his life, the movie "The Wizard of Oz" had captured Samaras's imagination.

    About Energy.gov » News & Blog About Energy.gov » News & Blog News & Blog Blog Wind energy is one of the world's fast-growing energy sources -- and many of the regions that could benefit from wind energy happen to be in cold climates. Since 2005, scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have been researching, developing and testing materials in freezing conditions. By developing more efficient materials for wind turbines, researchers can increase turbine efficiency and reduce potential downtime for wind turbines in cold climates. The teams use Titan, the world's most powerful supercomputer, to simulate hundreds of water droplets as they freeze, with each droplet containing one million molecules. By simulating and studying how water freezes on a molecular level, scientists are gaining an understanding of how ice forms, which will help them design better, more efficient materials for these colder climates. Pictured here is an illustration of a single water droplet, filled with molecules freezing in slow motion. Learn more about their research here. | Photo/visualization courtesy of M. Matheson, Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

    'Teams' 'Teams' Solar Decathlon 2013: Designing the Houses of Today Thursday, September 12, 2013 By Rebecca Matulka Editor's Note: This entry has been cross-posted from DOE's Energy Blog. Designing an energy-efficient, solar-powered house for the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is like solving a riddle that has more than one answer. Instead of just thinking about building materials and cost in the design process, teams have to consider a myriad of factors to create a winning house. Although the design process never officially ends, the teams spend more than a year focusing on design before breaking ground on their houses. Early in the process, they select a target client for their house-one of the biggest impacts on their final design-and decide how they will

    BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE IN BLOGS: UNDERSTANDING CONSUMER INTERACTIONS AND COMMUNITIES  

    E-Print Network (OSTI)

    The increasing popularity of Web 2.0 has led to exponential growth of user-generated content in both volume and significance. One important type of user-generated content is the blog. Blogs encompass useful information (e.g., insightful product reviews and information-rich consumer communities) that could potentially be a gold mine for business intelligence, bringing great opportunities for both academic research and business applications. However, performing business intelligence on blogs is quite challenging because of the vast amount of information and the lack of commonly adopted methodology for effectively collecting and analyzing such information. In this paper, we propose a framework for gathering business intelligence from blogs by automatically collecting and analyzing blog contents and bloggers interaction networks. Through a system developed using the framework, we conducted two case studies with one case focusing on a consumer product and the other on a company. Our case studies demonstrate how to use the framework and appropriate techniques to effectively collect, extract, and analyze blogs related to the topics of interest, reveal novel patterns in the blogger interactions and communities, and answer important business intelligence questions in the domains. The framework is sufficiently generic and can be applied to any topics of interest, organizations, and products. Future academic research and business applications related to the topics examined in the two cases can also be built using the findings of this study.

For the teams competing in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, every cent counts. From researching design options and building supplies to transporting houses and communications materials, the costs of developing a competition house can add up. But before the teams even start on the building process, they must first master the art of fundraising. To get them started, the Energy Department gives each team a $100,000 grant to meet competition deliverables-such as developing a project manual, creating a health and safety plan, and producing digital renderings of it house.

President Harry S. Truman confirmed the civilian control of atomic energy by signing the Atomic Energy Act on August 1, 1946. On January 1, 1947, the AEC took over from the Manhattan Engineer District (Manhattan Project) the research and production facilities built during World War II to develop the atomic bomb. Because of the need for great security, all production facilities and nuclear reactors would be government-owned, while all technical information and research results would be under Commission control. The Commission recognized the need to maintain the vitality of the national labs and to encourage the university research teams and industry groups whose research on the peaceful uses of atomic energy would provide the technology of the future.

    A Comparison of Techniques for Detecting Abnormal Change in Blogs  

    Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

    Distributed collections are made of metadata entries that contain references to artifacts not controlled by the collection curators. These collections often have limited forms of change; for digital distributed collections, primarily creation and deletion of additional resources. However, there exists a class of digital collection that undergoes additional kinds of change. These collections consist of resources that are distributed across the Internet and brought together via hyperlinking. Resources in these collections can be expected to change as time goes on. Part of the difficulty in maintaining these collections is determining if a changed page is still a valid member of the collection. Others have tried to address this by defining a maximum allowed threshold of change, however, these methods treat change as a potential problem and treat web content as static despite its intrinsic dynamicism. Instead we acknowledge change on the web as a normal part of a web document and determine the difference between what a maintainer expects a page to do and what it actually does. In this work we evaluate options for extractors and analyzers from a suite of techniques against a human-generated ground-truth set of blog changes. The results of this work show a statistically significant improvement over traditional threshold techniques for our collection.

    Workload Characterization and Performance Implications of Large-Scale Blog Servers  

    SciTech Connect

    With the ever-increasing popularity of social network services (SNSs), an understanding of the characteristics of these services and their effects on the behavior of their host servers is critical. However, there has been a lack of research on the workload characterization of servers running SNS applications such as blog services. To fill this void, we empirically characterized real-world web server logs collected from one of the largest South Korean blog hosting sites for 12 consecutive days. The logs consist of more than 96 million HTTP requests and 4.7 TB of network traffic. Our analysis reveals the followings: (i) The transfer size of non-multimedia files and blog articles can be modeled using a truncated Pareto distribution and a log-normal distribution, respectively; (ii) User access for blog articles does not show temporal locality, but is strongly biased towards those posted with image or audio files. We additionally discuss the potential performance improvement through clustering of small files on a blog page into contiguous disk blocks, which benefits from the observed file access patterns. Trace-driven simulations show that, on average, the suggested approach achieves 60.6% better system throughput and reduces the processing time for file access by 30.8% compared to the best performance of the Ext4 file system.

THREE INCHES! On October 10th! Despite having grown up in what one of my college roommates lovingly referred to as the "TUNDRA!" (a.k.a, Wisconsin, and yes, she spoke this word in horrified all-caps), I am opposed to winter. I mean, I get that winter should not go away. Climate change is bad. And things like skiing, ice skating, snow forts, and hot chocolate do make winter a bit more bearable. But it's just so... cold. And icy. And dark. Unfortunately, hibernation isn't really an option, and-in addition to extra doses of whining from yours truly-all of those cold, dark days can

    Patterns of Emotional Blogging and Emergence of Communities: Agent-Based Model on Bipartite Networks  

    E-Print Network (OSTI)

    Background: We study mechanisms underlying the collective emotional behavior of Bloggers by using the agent-based modeling and the parameters inferred from the related empirical data. Methodology/Principal Findings: A bipartite network of emotional agents and posts evolves through the addition of agents and their actions on posts. The emotion state of an agent,quantified by the arousal and the valence, fluctuates in time due to events on the connected posts, and in the moments of agent's action it is transferred to a selected post. We claim that the indirect communication of the emotion in the model rules, combined with the action-delay time and the circadian rhythm extracted from the empirical data, can explain the genesis of emotional bursts by users on popular Blogs and similar Web portals. The model also identifies the parameters and how they influence the course of the dynamics. Conclusions: The collective behavior is here recognized by the emergence of communities on the network and the fractal time-ser...
