UD study reports offshore wind in Cape Wind may be more powerful, turbulent than expected

University of Delaware researchers report in a new study that offshore wind may be more powerful, yet more turbulent than expected in the northeastern United States.

The findings, published in a paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres, could have important implications for the future development of offshore wind farms in the U.S., including the assessment of how much wind power can be produced, what type of turbines should be used, how many turbines should be installed and the spacing between each.
