    Numerical Weather Predictions (NWP) of wind speed and direction has been compared to measurements for seven German sites for nuclear power plants, and for Risø, the site of the Danish nuclear research reactors now being decommissioned . For the German sites the data cover approximately three month, the NWP data from Austrian Meteorological and Geophysical Office, AMGO, cover 5th January to 31st March 2009 with two daily sets of analysis and 1 to 48 hours forecasts, the measured data cover the full three month, i.e. from 1st January, with 10 minute resolution. For the Risø site NWP results of the HIRLAM code from Danish Meteorological Institute were once stored for two thirds of a year, i.e. 1017 times analysis and 1 to 5 hour forecast within the period 21st October 1998 to 30th September 1999, and 10 minute averaged measured data are available since November 1995.
