Abstract

The WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting model) will be used to estimate the wind field over the Baltic Sea. The main aim is to evaluate optimal model setting using in-situ measurements in order to determine optimal model settings for off-shore wind resource estimations. The model performance in simulating Low-Level Jets, i.e. correctly capturing strength, height and occurence, will also be evaluated as well as other boundary-layer phenomena.
