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.

ARM Facility Captures Rare Tornado Data ARM Facility Captures Rare Tornado Data Bookmark and Share Every spring, tornadoes thunder across five states, from Kansas to Texas, and alerts are common. However, by Monday, May 20, it was clear that this time the alert had a different urgency to it. The turn of events leading up to the EF-5 tornado that wreaked havoc in Moore, Oklahoma, provided a unique opportunity for scientists to sample the environment preceding a severe weather event. Raw data from the additional radiosonde launches preceding the severe weather events of May 20 in Oklahoma. The blue line identifies the temperature, which decreases with increasing altitude (decreasing pressure). The red line is the dew point; dew point-also expressed as a temperature-is the temperature at which the air is 100% saturated with its water vapor content (low values of the dew point represent low relative humidity). Where the dew point approaches the actual temperature, the air is nearing 100% relative humidity, or saturation, near the ground-ideal conditions for tornado events.

History Tool Records Changes to Datastreams History Tool Records Changes to Datastreams Bookmark and Share As the name implies, a "datastream" is a continuous record of a specific type of data that is collected and saved in a time series. Occasionally, modifications are needed to update or correct a datastream. Knowing the history of changes to a datastream is a critical issue for ARM data users. Recognizing this need, the ARM Data Management Facility (DMF) created a tool to record the history of every datastream for every instrument from every ARM site since the beginning of the ARM Program. The History of Datastream tool looks for changes to the data object design (DOD) files weekly and creates a history link for DODs that have changed. By selecting "history," users will have access to the old DOD file and a file outlining the differences.

Upgrade to Millimeter Wave Cloud Radar Increases Volume of Data Collection Upgrade to Millimeter Wave Cloud Radar Increases Volume of Data Collection Bookmark and Share In mid-April, hardware and software upgrades to the millimeter wave cloud radar (MMCR) at the ARM Climate Research Facility's North Slope of Alaska (NSA) were completed. Hardware upgrades included replacing the OS/2 and Solaris computers with two Windows 2000 computers. One of these computers is for the MMCR radar. It now has a new digital signal processing board that allows much more efficient processing of the radar return signals, resulting in higher temporal resolution. The receiver was also upgraded from a 12 bit to 14 bit analog-to-digital converter. Software on the MMCR radar computer was upgraded to run a modified version of Vaisala's LAP-XM software for controlling and acquiring the radar data. The other computer,

New Pump Shelter Kicks Off Upgrades to Aerosol Observing System New Pump Shelter Kicks Off Upgrades to Aerosol Observing System Bookmark and Share Representing the first of several planned improvements to the Aerosol Observing System (AOS) at the SGP site, the ARM Climate Research Facility operations staff completed installing a new pump shelter for the system in late September, followed by relocation of the pumps and connection of the electrical hookups in October. Though the enclosure was designed primarily to move the nine vacuum pumps out of the existing AOS trailer-thereby reducing the potential for damage to the AOS instruments from heat generated by the pumps-noise reduction in the AOS trailer was another desired outcome. Anticipated instrument additions were also considered in designing the new enclosure. The new pump shelter sits on a concrete pad near the south end of the AOS. Four adjustable, open-wire shelves run the width of the shelter, and can accommodate sixteen large pumps and associated ventilation equipment.

Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) provide the same amount of light as incandescent bulbs but use about 75% less energy. CFLs fit into common household fixtures and are available at most hardware stores. And although CFLs cost slightly more than incandescent bulbs, they save money over time by lasting 15 times longer than their less-efficient counterparts. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) offer proof that a lot of light can come in a small package. Typically less than 10 watts, LED lights are becoming more

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.

ARM facility captures rare tornado data [EVS News]  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

ARM facility captures rare tornado data ARM facility captures rare tornado data June 13, 2013 Every spring, tornadoes thunder across five states, from Kansas to Texas, and alerts are common. However, by Monday, May 20, it was clear that this time the alert had a different urgency to it. The turn of events leading up to the EF-5 tornado that wreaked havoc in Moore, Oklahoma, provided a unique opportunity for scientists to sample the environment preceding a severe weather event. Read more about how EVS scientist, Donna Holdridge, supported the ARM program in the full article. Raw data from the additional radiosonde launches preceding the severe weather events of May 20 in Oklahoma. The blue line identifies the temperature, which decreases with increasing altitude. The red line is the dew point, the temperature at which the air is 100% saturated with its water vapor content. Where the dew point approaches the actual temperature, the air is nearing 100% relative humidity near the ground-ideal conditions for tornado events.

While this dream system moved over the site it would be sampled by all the CF instrumentation including the new scanning radar systems, sliced and diced by the N-Pol and D3R radars, and sampled from above by the NASA ER-2 and within by the UND Citation along well defined cross sections over the CF.

Bookmark and Share The Biomass Burning Observation Project, or BBOP, is a field campaign that is being carried out with the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Aerial Facility (AAF) of the U.S. Department of Energy this summer to measure the evolution of properties of aerosols produced by biomass burns. Biomass refers to any vegetation-trees, grass, etc.-and thus biomass burns refer to forest fires, grass fires, etc., whether they be natural, such as forest fires started by lightning strikes, or anthropogenic (i.e., man-made), such as crops being burned by farmers. This first newsletter will give an introduction to BBOP, and subsequent newsletters, to be distributed every few weeks, will provide information on the status of the

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a large research device located at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The NIF uses powerful lasers to heat and compress hydrogen fuel to the point where nuclear fusion reactions take place. It is currently the largest and most energetic inertial confinement fusion device in the world. Researchers use the NIF to ensure the safety of nuclear weapons, explore the potential of fusion as a safe energy source, and understand how the universe was created. In this photo, NIF Team members Bruno Van Wonterghem (left), Jim Nally (pointing) and Rod Saunders watch through a newly installed viewing window, which allows the NIF team and visitors to see inside the chamber while it is vacuum-sealed for experiments.

4, 2013 [Blog] 4, 2013 [Blog] Recycling: A Lesson from Manus Island Bookmark and Share Guest post and photos by Chad Baldi, Project Engineer, ProSensing Inc. 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. The other photo is a picture of wood-crafted shed. This is an office/study

November 13, 2013 [BBOP, Blog, Field Notes] November 13, 2013 [BBOP, Blog, Field Notes] Thanks for the Great Work - and BBOP Data! Bookmark and Share Editor's note: Drs. 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.

7, 2013 [Blog, Field Notes, SGP] 7, 2013 [Blog, Field Notes, SGP] You Will Be Missed, Mr. Samaras Bookmark and Share Around the early 1990s, the U.S. Department of Energy set up the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program to collect climate and weather-related observations from across the globe. 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.
