- Long Bay Wintertime Blooms
- An NSF funded project to study the physical and biological conditions leading to and during wintertime blooms that occur off the east coast along the frontal boundary of the Gulf Stream. This study focuses on physical mechanisms of nutrient input from the slope to the outer shelf off Long Bay in winter and the response of the phytoplankton community.
- NC Wind Study
- These sections provide detailed information and data analysis conducted in support of the NC Wind Energy Feasibility Project. Phase 1 developed statistics and graphical products for measured wind, air temperature and surface air pressure at on-land and over-water sites in eastern NC and offshore. Phase 2 efforts include system requirements of the buoy and tower observation platforms, and satellite wind analysis.
- NC Wind Energy Development Economics
- A study for the North Carolina State Energy Office, Georgia Environmental Finance Authority, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, and US Department of Energy by Dr. Harvey Seim and Chris Calloway of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Department of Marine Sciences. A cost model for offshore wind farm foundations and transmission lines was applied across suitable cadastres for decision support.
