The vertical extrapolation model described in the European Wind Atlas Troen and Petersen (1989) is modified to take into account large-scale average geostrophic wind shear to describe the effect of horizontal temperature gradients on the geostrophic wind. The method is implemented by extracting the average geostrophic wind shear from Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) data
and the values of nearest grid point are automatically used in the WAsP 12.1 user interface to provide better AEP predictions.
