A new earth modeling system unveiled today will have weather-scale resolution and use advanced computers to simulate aspects of Earth's variability and anticipate decadal changes that will critically impact the U.S. energy sector in coming years.
A novel approach has the potential to increase wind power generation significantly with a consequent increase in revenue. Numerical simulations indicate potential increases of up to six to seven percent.
It is a long-cherished dream: Removing the inert greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and using it as a basic material for the chemical industry. This could address two major problems at once by containing climate change and at the same time reducing the dependence on oil.
For decades, combustion researchers and engine companies have been seeking to understand how these gases are produced during combustion so that they can find ways to reduce them. Now researchers have synthesized more than a decade's worth of combustion studies to create a new overarching model of how nitrogen oxides are produced.
