Snow-covering effects on the power output of solar photovoltaic arrays

Snow-covering effects on the power output of solar photovoltaic arrays

OSTI.gov Authors: Brench, B. L. Publication Date: 1979-12-01 Abstract In general, snow covering a photovoltaic panel causes negligible energy loss when the snow is light and melts easily; however, a more serious loss can occur when the snow is heavy and does not quickly melt or shed. In order to examine the effects of snow cover on the output energy …

Revising evidence of hurricane strikes on Abaco Island (The Bahamas) over the last 700 years

Revising evidence of hurricane strikes on Abaco Island (The Bahamas) over the last 700 years

Tyler S. Winkler, Peter J. van Hengstum, Jeffrey P. Donnelly, Elizabeth J. Wallace, Richard M. Sullivan, Dana MacDonald & Nancy A. Albury Scientific Reports volume 10, Article number: 16556 (2020) Abstract The northern Bahamas have experienced more frequent intense-hurricane impacts than almost anywhere else in the Atlantic since 1850 CE. In 2019, category 5 (Saffir-Simpson scale) Hurricane Dorian demonstrated the destructive potential of …

A spatially explicit surface urban heat island database for the United States: Characterization, uncertainties, and possible applications

Science Direct T.Chakrabortyac, A.Hsubcd, D.Manyac, G.Sheriffe Received 3 April 2020, Revised 30 July 2020, Accepted 30 July 2020, Available online 13 August 2020. Abstract The urban heat island (UHI) effect is strongly modulated by urban-scale changes to the aerodynamic, thermal, and radiative properties of the Earth’s land surfaces. Interest in this phenomenon, both from the climatological and public health perspectives, …
