A Study of Valley Winds Using the MIUU Meso-scale Model
2006 (English)In: Wind Energy, Vol. 9, 109-129 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
High winds are sometimes found in low-altitude terrain in mountain valleys. The reasons for this and the possibilities to find such sites from modelled wind fields are investigated. The higher-order closure MIUU model developed at Uppsala University is used for a general study of channelling of winds in mountain valleys. The importance of length, width and depth of the valley is investigated. Comparisons are made with wind measurements.
