    Abstract

    In order to get a better overview of the spatial distribution of the wind resource in the Gulf of Suez, numerical simulations to determine the wind climate have been carried out with the Karlsruhe Atmospheric Mesoscale Model KAMM. The method and the results are described here. The simulations of the wind climate of the Gulf of Suez with KAMM capture the main features of the observed wind climate. The mean wind speed and energy flux density are somewhat underpredicted.
