Any Way the Wind BlowsExternal link

Forecasting the wind for tomorrow is a daily challenge to wind farm operators in places like the Columbia River Gorge in the Pacific Northwest. To more accurately predict wind in complex terrain, researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory partnered in a project called Wind Forecast Improvement Project II (WFIP 2).

Making a Movie of Nanocrystals' Structural EvolutionExternal link

Combined ultrafast snapshots suggest that the crystal symmetry of copper sulfide nanocrystals changes due to interactions between electrons and atoms vibrating in the crystal lattice—an understanding of which could help scientists optimize the functionality of superconductors, magnetic materials, and other strongly correlated systems.
