A new study suggests that more robust turbine design is needed to weather high winds.
The turbulent pockets of air inside storms can help to build up static electricity in the atmosphere, according to a new study.
Images from the rover’s pioneering encounter with sand dunes on Mars constrain wind speeds required to move sand in the thin Martian atmosphere.
Researchers present a novel method for analyzing how wind shear affects tropical cyclone strength and structure.
A new 3-D model shows how wind affects hydrodynamic mixing in a northern Italian lake.
Researchers are now gathered for the Perdigão field campaign, an effort to study wind flow physics at scales down to tens of meters. The effort should help engineers harness wind energy in Europe.
Mars is even more like Earth than we thought, according to a statistical analysis of the planet's swirling atmosphere.
For the first time, scientists have observed a deviation from the typical alternating pattern of easterly and westerly winds in the equatorial stratosphere.
A study of Earth's atmospheric response to major volcanic eruptions seeks to reconcile contradictions between observations and climate models.
The proposed wind farm, which commercial fishermen oppose, could produce at least 70 megawatts of energy annually, enough to power a quarter of a million homes.
