Program Description:

Atmospheric kinetics or wind has many metrics, direction, speed, duration, predictability along with many more esoteric qualities.  Yet, wind is a phenomena which is a direct result of a few important factors, mainly thermodynamics, gravity, and topography.   We have quite a vast body of knowledge, gained through longitudinal observation, simulation and experimentation.   Much of this data has been collected to service the wind energy sectors.  Of these fundamental forces the most pliable are the thermodynamics and topology. 

Anthropogenic factors that affect topology are things like land usage, for example a field of soybeans has radical affects on wind when compared to a forest.   While the thermodynamics (heat and moisture) are affected by plant growth, industrial activity, and albedo (ground reflectivity).  It is often this surprisingly low hanging fruit that can be plucked to modify if not master local or regional winds.

The INdRA wind intensity and direction consultancy is a long or medium term program (5-25 years) designed to institute environmental modifications aimed at affecting regional wind flows and directions.    The program is based upon the management of the PBL [planetary boundary layer] or lowest layers of the atmosphere, through the variety and density of anthropogenic and non-anthropogenic structures.

The program analyzes the physical and thermal topologies of the region, and formulates plans which will optimize these structures.   This may include structures as diverse as highways and agricultural resources.

Hydrology Mapping : Program design, methods, objectives and metrics:


This program is designed to generate a dynamic catalog of local or regional water sources, categorized by salinity, flows, renewability, and hygienic state.    Longitudinal studies of secondary and primary sources are considered for periods sufficient to incorporate the effects of sea surface temperature fluctuations such as El Niño, as well as synoptic watershed variations.

The objective of this data collection is to identify sources, cycles and frailties of humidity sources.  The deliverables of the program will include detailed flow maps of hydrological sources including arable and non-arable land.

This data is then used to understand wind intensity and wind flows in the region to facilitate land and water use recommendations designed to optimize wind flows.

Thermal Mapping:

Thermal Mapping : Program design, methods, objectives and metrics:


Secondary data is augmented with primary data sources collected by professional IR imaging professionals.  Every attempt will be made to hire local or regional professionals. Methods, such as drones or fixed wing surveys, will be selected for effectiveness and cost efficiency.

This portion of the program will deliver a sufficiently detailed longitudinal thermal picture of the area to allow an understanding of heat sources and sinks sufficient to make recommendations.

This consultancy is designed to work directly with local, regional and national legislators through various agencies and commissions.

The primary deliverables from an INdRA environmental consultancy is a series of detailed reports.  These reports will include a wide range of data analysis, feasibility studies, and hard legislative recommendations.

Legislative guidelines will provide sufficient background information on important stakeholder concerns such as best practices,  efficiency and effectiveness historical information, cost estimates, time lines, community impact statements, and model legislation.

Typical recommendations include zoning laws, business development guidelines, commercial, residential and agricultural guides, and infrastructure projects.

INdRA project personnel will act in an explicitly advisory capacity for insurance and legislative purposes.  Where necessary appointments, temporary and open, will be accepted to address political or administrative requirements.

Depending upon the nature of the challenges being addressed, INdRA staffers will employ a variety of project management techniques.  Scrum ban, benefits realization management, and Prince2 are the primary project management approaches.

Our objectives are to move projects forward with sufficient transparency that stakeholders can easily report and justify progress to their constituents.

IINdRA  will supply world class subject matter experts to weigh in at all stages of the projects implementation.  These SME's will be on contract to review important elements of any project.  Those elements of most concern are structural implementation, industrial design, resource acquisition, and standards adherence
