Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
The impacts of climate change on environmental security and national security is of growing concern. Most studies to date have focused on the drastic changes on sea level, temperature increases, droughts, and frequency of tropical storms. However, changes in seasonality of cloud cover and wind fields can have drastic impacts on emerging alternative energy strategies that center on solar and wind power, respectively. Beyond energy generation, cloud cover can also impact satellite data collection via obfuscation. This research would advance the understanding of potential cloud cover changes and impacts on commercial collection strategies.
Leveraging climate models to forecast solar energy generation viability in different regions, but with overlay of civilian (LandSat) orbital paths.
