Abstract

The long-term average wind climate offshore is essential for wind energy planning in the marine environment, where in situ measurements are costly and sparse.

DTU Wind Energy has a long-standing tradition of utilising Scatterometer and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) ocean surface winds to cover the needs of offshore wind energy applications, e.g Karagali et al. [1], Hasager et al. [2].

Scatterometer winds from ASCAT, with their extended period of availability are valuable for describing longer-term wind statistics for offshore areas.

SAR winds are being retrieved since the ENVISAT era and with the addition of Sentinel-1, a large archive of high-resolution surface wind fields is publicly available at https://satwinds.windenergy.dtu.dk/.

Example products for wind resource assessment are available at http://science.globalwindatlas.info/science.html
