BDN Reports on UMaine Team’s Race to Use Lasers to Gauge Ocean Wind Speeds

A Bangor Daily News article on the University of Maine offshore wind team’s international race to develop a system to measure winds high above oceans using a buoy-based light detection and ranging system, or LiDAR, included comments from UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center Director Habib Dagher. UMaine’s School of Marine Science’s Physical Oceanography Group hopes to deploy the LiDAR in the Gulf of Maine by late May or early June. The group has been measuring wind, wave and atmospheric conditions in the Gulf of Maine for more than a decade and the data they have collected has been used by many mariners and gives UMaine a lead in the global race to implement these systems.
