Weather to Energy: A Complex Voyagesynthesizes several vertically integrated disciplines to allow new researchers to become involved in renewable energy studies, covering the basics needed to jump into the field, from electrical load data to weather model data. The research on optimizing weather-driven renewable energies requires working knowledge of certain disciplines, such as economics, mathematics, atmospheric physics, statistics, fluid dynamics, power modeling and engineering. This book's aim is to inspire new research in renewable energy for interested scientists who may not have the required skills, as well as those already working in the field.

  • Collates research and difficult concepts in a friendly, but technical, manner to serve as a handy reference guide
  • Includes chapters on weather analysis, including prediction, assimilation and modeling
Dr. Clack is a research scientist at the Cooperative Institute for research in Environmental Sciences and works alongside National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists on weather-driven renewable energy related investigations. He is a mathematician and physicist with 7 years of experience devoted to renewable energies in v...
