Dutch Offshore Wind Atlas - daily files of all 2,5 km grid points for the full model domain

This data set contains output from the model runs that were used to produce the Dutch Offshore Wind Atlas (DOWA), but for the full domain, on model levels and for more parameters. DOWA provides a validated wind climatology based on 10 years (2008-2017) of model data: weather model HARMONIE-AROME is nested in re-analyses ERA5. More information on the website: www.dutchoffshorewindatlas.nl. Note: the proj4 string in the NetCDF file is incorrect. It should be: +proj=lcc +lat_1=52.500000 +lat_2=52.500000 +lat_0=52.500000 +lon_0=.000000 +k_0=1.0 +x_0=649536.512574 +y_0=1032883.739533 +a=6371220.000000 +b=6371220.000000
