Two methods of post-processing the uncalibrated wind speed forecasts from the European Centre for MediumRange Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) ensemble prediction system (EPS) are presented here. Both methods involve statistically post-processing the EPS or a downscaled version of it with Bayesian model averaging (BMA). The first method applies BMA directly to the(More)
Mineralization of soil organic matter is governed by predictable factors with nitrate-N as the end product. Crop production interrupts the natural balance, accelerates mineralization of N, and elevates levels of nitrate-N in soil. Six factors determine nitrate-N levels in soils: soil clay content, bulk density, organic matter content, pH, temperature, and(More)
Vortex shedding may occur in tube arrays, resulting in strong excitation forces at discrete frequencies. In the past the Strouhal numbers governing vortex shedding in these systems were determined primarily by experiment. This paper presents a computationally inexpensive method of numerical simulation for the unsteady flow through a rigid normal triangular(More)
We consider the impact of climate change on the wind energy resource of Ireland using an ensemble of Regional Climate Model (RCM) simulations. The RCM used in this work is the COSMO-CLM Model. The COSMO-CLM model is evaluated by performing simulations of the past Irish climate, driven by ECMWF ERA-40 data, and comparing the output to observations. Results(More)
