NEXRAD Weather Radars and Wind Turbines

Webinar Recordings

Wind turbines can impact NEXRAD weather radars if not properly sited. Weather radar impacts are also involved in some of the siting challenges around military facilities the wind industry has experienced notably around Fort Drum in New York. NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) has developed various analytic tools and policies to help evaluate proposed wind projects. On this webinar NOAA NWS staff will provide an update on their evaluation of wind farms including concerns they have analytic tools they’ve developed and recent policy changes.
