Tall wind turbines require assessment of wind resources above typical heights of measurement masts. Lidar is becoming a popular tool for measuring over expected turbine rotor heights, but it is generally not yet feasible to use lidar for more than a few months in industrial wind farm developments. This project focuses on how lidar measurements, in combination with MCP, can be used in wind resource assessment
