Wind Energy

Uppsala University the meteorological research has since many years been concentrated on conditions in the atmospheric boundary layer, including both field experiments and numerical modelling. This boundary layer consists of the part of the atmosphere closest to the underlying surface, up to some hundreds or thousand metres height or so depending on the atmospheric conditions. Experience has thus been gained over many years concerning mean wind and turbulence conditions in the part of the atmosphere which is of greatest interest within the field of wind energy.
