This project will investigate the relationship between real wind speed data (and potentially power data) collected at wind turbines, and the power estimates provided by models that use estimated wind resource, wake models and turbine power curves to predict power output. Different wake models will be investigated to see if some are more effective at predicting results than others. Any variance from real data in the predictions will be traced to the three factors modeled, to see if one plays a larger role than the others.

CNBC reporter Eric Rosenbaum talks with Ames Laboratory researchers Karl Gschneidner and Bill McCallum on the scarcity of rare-earth metals and what the Critical Materials Institute hopes to do about the problem, including finding substitute materials and using more plentiful cerium in place of dysprosium.
This three-day course provides hands-on training focused on the basic concepts and techniques for analyzing forensic digital images.
|A number of Ames Laboratory staff have been selected to receive research and teaching awards from Iowa State University.|
|Long-time Ames Lab chemist John Corbett passed away Sept. 2. Corbett was one of the Lab's longest serving employees and was honored earliers this year for 60 years of service.|
|Ames Lab Occupational Medicine staff will administer flu shots from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. October 7 through October 18 in 205 Technical Administrative Service Facility (TASF). No appointment is necessary. Be sure to bring your ISU ID card or your university ID number to the shot clinic.|
Ames Laboratory is taking advantage of Titan, one of the worldâ€™s most powerful computers, to discover substitutes for rare-earth magnets. In the race to find substitutes, supercomputers are the lead-off runner, ensuring that scientists can rapidly target the best possibilities for materials discovery.
|Ames Lab employees can use a new web-based computer program called ALEC to help the Lab keep track of commuting miles as part of an overall goal to reduce the Lab's carbon footprint. You enter basic information into the program and it will automatically keep track of your commuter miles.|
