The IMPOWR project (Improving the Mapping and Prediction of Offshore Wind Resources) is sponsored by the US Department of Energy and lead by SUNY's Stony Brook University. Our goal is to improve the treatment of the boundary layer winds in mesoscale models, such as the WRF, via measurements and ensemble modeling.

This is a photo of the Cape Wind meteorological tower, back around 2009 when it was still in good shape. Our plan was to install 3D sonic anemometers on all 3 levels but we discovered in summer 2012 that the arms were in poor shape and could not be climbed.
