Whitepaper: PolarPower.org - Wind Power Systems
Wind is a force of nature familiar to every polar researcher.Although often perceived as something with which to contend, italso offers tremendous opportunities in the support of scientificresearch. Many polar locales such as ice caps, coastal regions,and areas experiencing katabatic winds are ideally suited for theuse of wind turbines. In areas such as these, wind turbines canoften provide the primary or even sole source of electrical powergeneration. Even locations typically regarded as having relativelypoor wind resources, such as interior Alaska, often experienceadequate wind speeds to provide at least a supplemental chargingsource for a battery-based system.
