Infield, D.G. (2002) Tidal influence on offshore wind fields and resource predictions. International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development, 1 (4). pp. 312-326. ISSN 1474-6778Full text not available in this repository. (Request a copy from the Strathclyde author)
The rise and fall of the sea surface due to tides effectively moves an offshore wind turbine hub through the wind shear profile. This effect is quantified using measured data from three offshore UK sites. Statistical evidence of the influence of tide on mean wind speed and turbulence is presented. The implications of this effect for predicting offshore wind resource are outlined.
