Wind power meteorology has evolved as an applied science, firmly founded on boundary-layer meteorology, but with strong links to climatology and geography. It concerns itself with three main areas: siting of wind turbines, regional wind resource assessment, and short-term prediction of the wind resource. The history, status and perspectives of wind power(More)
The method of combining the Karlsruhe Atmospheric Mesoscale Model, KAMM, with the Wind Atlas Analysis and Application Program, WAsP, to make local predictions of the wind resource is presented. It combines the advantages of meso-scale modeling — overview over a big region and use of global data bases — with the local prediction capacity of the small-scale(More)
Daily 2009 surface winds from five model, remotely-sensed, and reanalysis wind products are compared with measurements from three fixed mooring buoys located in the west equatorial Pacific (0 o N, 165 o E), the central equatorial Pacific (0 o N, 170 o W), and the eastern-central equatorial Pacific Ocean (0 o N, 140 o W). The cross-correlation coefficients(More)
