Atmospheric boundary layer wind profile at a flat coastal site – wind speed lidar measurements and mesoscale modeling results
Publication: Research - peer-review › Conference article – Annual report year: 2011
Wind profiles up to 600m height are investigated. Measurements of mean wind speed profiles were obtained from a novel wind lidar and compared to model simulations from a mesoscale model (WRFARW v3.1). It is found that WRF is able to predict the mean wind profile rather well and typically within 1–2ms−1 to the individual measured values. WRF underpredicts the normalized wind profile, especially for stable conditions. The effect of baroclinicity on the upper part of the wind profile is discussed.
