Data repository of a meteorological experiment conducted in Perdigão, Portugal between December 15, 2016 to June 15, 2017.
The Perdigao field project is part of a larger joint US/European multi-year program in Portugal. The project is partially funded by the European Union (EU) ERANET+ to provide the wind energy sector with more detailed resource mapping capabilities in the form of a new digital EU wind atlas. A major goal of the Perdigão field project is to quantify errors of wind resource models against a benchmark dataset collected in complex terrain. The US participation will complement this activity by identifying physical and numerical weaknesses of models and developing new knowledge and methods to overcome such deficiencies.
