Dutch Offshore Wind Atlas - time series files from 2008-2017 at 10-600 meter height at individual 2,5 km grid location

The Dutch Offshore Wind Atlas (DOWA) is validated wind climatology (and information on temperature, pressure and relative humidity) based on 10 years (2008-2017) of model data: weather model HARMONIE-AROME is nested in re-analyses ERA5. In this data set time series for individual grid locations are available. 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=-92963.487426 +y_0=230383.739533 +a=6371220.000000 +b=6371220.000000
