Wind speed climatology and trends for Australia, 1975-2006: Capturing the stilling phenomenon and comparison with near-surface reanalysis output
Near-surface wind speeds (u) measured by terrestrial anemometers show declines (a 'stilling') at a range of midlatitude sites, but two gridded u datasets (a NCEP/NCAR reanalysis output and a surface-pressure-based u model) have not reproduced the stilling observed at Australian stations. We developed Australia-wide 0.01° resolution daily u grids by interpolating measurements from an expanded anemometer network for 1975-2006. These new grids represented the magnitude and spatial-variability of...[Show more]
