Wind Integration National Dataset (WIND) Toolkit

Publicly accessible License 

Wind resource data for North America was produced using the Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF). The WRF model was initialized with the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts Interim Reanalysis (ERA-Interm) data set with an initial grid spacing of 54 km. Three internal nested domains were used to refine the spatial resolution to 18, 6, and finally 2 km. The WRF model was run for years 2007 to 2014. While outputs were extracted from WRF at 5 minute time-steps, due to storage limitations instantaneous hourly time-step are provided for all variables while full 5 min resolution data is provided for wind speed and wind direction only.

The following variables were extracted from the WRF model data:
- Wind Speed at 10, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 200 m
- Wind Direction at 10, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 200 m
- Temperature at 2, 10, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 200 m
- Pressure at 0, 100, 200 m
- Surface Precipitation Rate
- Surface Relative Humidity
- Inverse Monin Obukhov Length
