How may wind energy generation activities influence sediments in waterways?

What are the impacts of wind energy generation activities on riparian vegetation?

A low-cost weather station for gathering accurate weather data. Wind speed and direction, air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure and rainfall data can be accessed from a server, via the internet.

This measures rain by the drop as well as by the tradional 'tip'. We can configure it either with an SDI12 serial data interface or an integral logger with cellular communications.

The return of the upgraded RV Tangaroa represents a huge advancement for New Zealand science and exploration

NIWA today welcomed home RV Tangaroa, New Zealand’s only deepwater research vessel, after a $20 million dollar upgrade to enhance its ocean science and survey capabilities.

News of NIWA's energy-related projects around the theme of 'information for good energy decisions'. Our knowledge of the natural environment can contribute to innovation and improvements in energy systems, from small-scale renewable options to national networks.

The High Performance Computing Facility (HPCF) is supercharging New Zealand science—powering scientists working at the forefront of New Zealand’s greatest science challenges.

They are silent, produce no emissions when operating and create electricity - they are photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. NIWA Nelson has just installed 56 Jiawei 185W solar modules onto its rooftop to generate electricity.

The scope of the EnergyScape (parent) project was subtly different to the hydrogen options and bioenergy options sub-projects, but all three projects had similar phases of work and applied similar methodologies during their development. Before addressing the methodologies used in the EnergyScape projects, we need to define two concepts:

Energy pathway - An energy pathway is the thread that connects an energy resource as it is supplied through various conversion and distribution infrastructures to the application demanded by an end-user.

GeoNZ 2010

21 November 2010 to 24 November 2010

In November this year, the New Zealand Geothermal Workshop and the Geoscience Society of New Zealand are holding a joint conference in Auckland showcasing the latest and best in New Zealand geoscience research, geothermal science, and geothermal engineering. The meeting will include an overlap day with the annual meeting of the New Zealand branch of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, AusIMM.
 
The theme for the meeting is "Research · Economy · Frontiers"
