A first version of a wind atlas for the South Baltic Sea has been
developed using the WRF mesoscale model and verified by data
from tall Danish and German masts.
Six different boundary-layer parametrization schemes were
evaluated by comparing the WRF results to the observed wind
profiles at the masts. The WRF modeling was done in a nested
domain of high spatial resolution for 4 years. In addition the longterm
wind statistics using the NCAR-NCEP reanalysis data were
performed during 30 years to provide basis for a long-term
adjustment of the results and the final WRF results include
a weighting for the long-term trends variability in the South Baltic
Observations from Earth observing satellites were used to evaluate
the spatial resolution of the WRF model results near the surface.
The QuikSCAT and the WRF results compared well whereas the
Envisat ASAR mean wind map showed some variation to the
others. The long-term analysis revealed that the South Baltic Sea
has a spatially highly variable wind climate during the 30-years.
