A Petrov-Galerkin finite element model that employs local mesh adaptation is being developed to determine potential wind energy sites within the state of Nevada. Meteorological data collected from various private, county, city, and government agencies are used to generate diagnostic flow fields, which subsequently provide initial conditions for the prognostic solution of the time-dependent equations of motion and species transport. The model runs on a multiprocessor SGI Onyx 3800. Results of the data collection, including wind energy site forecasts, will be made available on the web when the assessment for the entire state is completed.
