September 2010: Kathleen Moore presented an invited
talk at AWEA's Wind Resource Assessment Workshop in September, 2010, in
Oklahoma City. The topic was an overview of the IEA Recommended Practices
for Sodar in Wind Resource Asssment.

IEDat at IEA
Kathleen Moore attended the International Energy
Agency's Topical Expert Meeting on Remote Sensing and Wind Energy,
October 15-16, 2009. The meeting was held at the National Wind
Technology Center in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Moore made a presentation
on using sodar for wind energy resource
IEDat at WindPower 2009
Kathleen Moore presents a poster at AWEA's Windpower
2009 eventl. The poster is entitled, "Sodar Measurements to Reduce
Shear Extrapolation Uncertainty".
AWEA's annual conference and exhibition is the
premier wind energy event of the year, drawing more than 12,000
attendees each year. This year's event, is in Chicago . For more

IEDat at AWEA's Wind Resource Assessment Workshop, 2008
A panel on the use of remote sensing technology in wind resource
assessment included a presentation by Kathleen Moore on sodar.
IEDat at AMS Boundary Layers and Turbulence, 2008
Kathleen Moore presented a paper at the American Meteorological
Society's 18th Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence in
Stockholm, Sweden. The paper was entitled, "Turbulence, Shear and
Stability Influences on Lower Boundary-Layer Profiles".
IEDAT Radar Facility in Use
As part of Integrated Environmental Data's expansion into the field of
environmental assessment for utility-scale wind and other projects,
IEDat has developed a radar facility to do bird and bat surveys. A
Furuno 25 kW X-band radar has been installed in a trailer to constitute
a mobile radar facility for radar ornithology. For the spring '07
migration season, 16 community members were trained to use the radar
for a study of how migrating birds use the rural Albany county site
under consideration for a community-owned wind farm. The facility is
being used under the NYSERDA
funded Community Wind project in rural Albany County.
IEDat at WindPower 2006
Dr. Kathleen Moore presented a paper at the American Wind Energy's
WindPower 2006 conference and exhibition entitled, "Sodar Wind Profiles
and Turbine Power Performance", co-authored with Dr. Bruce Bailey and
Mr. Daniel Bernadett of AWS Truewind, LLC. The paper makes use of the
extensive archive of sodar wind profiles measured at more than 93 sites
in North America and Hawaii, to explore how turbine power output can be
affected by varying shear throughout the entire turbine rotor plane
(30m to 140m).
AWEA's annual conference and exhibition is the premier wind energy
event of the year, drawing an increasing number of exhibitors and
attendees each year. This year's event, in Pittsburgh, drew more than
5,000 attendees. For more information on WindPower 2006, visit the AWEA

Community Wind Project at WindPower 2006
Integrated Environmental Data is involved in a NYSERDA
funded project to do
predevelopment work on a community-owned wind project in the Helderberg
mountains of rural Albany County. Loren Pruskowski of Sustainable Energy Developments, Inc.
is the lead contractor for this project. We presented a poster at
AWEA's WindPower 2006 conference and exhibition, June 2006, in
Pittsburgh, PA. The poster is titled, "A Community Wind Project in
Rural Albany County, New York State," and it is authored by Loren
Pruskowski, Kathleen Moore, Daniel Capuano, and Alexander Gordon.

Sodar & Lidar Clinic at Wind Resource Assessment Workshop
Kathleen Moore organized a hands-on sodar and lidar clinic at the Wind
Resource Assessment Workshop sponsored by AWEA and CanWEA in Syracuse
NY, September 2006. The clinic featured a short talk introducing the
principles of sodar and lidar, and then participants went out to the
roof of a parking garage, where a sodar was operating. More than 60
people participated in the clinic. The Workshop itself was a first-ever
event for AWEA, and it was sold out with more than 250 attendees.
