Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In 2008 the EC programme NORSEWInD kicked off with a mission to deliver high quality offshore wind speed data for the wind industry. The aim of the project is to deliver offshore wind speed data to the wind industry by measuring offshore wind speed data from remote sensing instruments (LiDAR) on off shore platforms. This work reports on the techniques used to assesses the interference effects of the various mounting platforms on the measured wind speed data.
