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.
