Because wind farms affect local weather and microclimates, parameterizations of their effects have been developed for numerical weather prediction models. While most wind farm parameterizations (WFP) include drag effects of wind farms, models differ on whether or not an additional turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) source should be included in these parameterizations to simulate the impact of wind farms on the boundary layer. Therefore, we use aircraft measurements above large offshore wind farms… Expand
