The data in this dataset comes from the HARMONIE model with a wind farm parameterisation. The model simulated a scenario for 2050. The locations and properties of the wind turbines were used as the input for the model. For one type of wind turbine, the height of the turbine and the diameter of the rotor in the input files were swapped. This concerns approximately 3750 turbines in future wind farms from the scenario. Consequentially impacting both wind energy production and atmospheric parameters such as wind speed in and around these wind farms. Hence it is not recommended to use this dataset for studies. The simulations will most likely be run again with corrected wind turbine input files and should be available in a few months.

Winds of the North Sea in 2050 (WINS50): wind speed, wind direction, temperature, pressure and relative humidity at 10-600 meter height from a reanalysis for 2020 with the NWP model HARMONIE-AROME nested in the ECMWF reanalysis ERA5. The HARMONIE-AROME simulation includes a wind farm parameterization (Fitch et al., 2012) using a 2050 scenario for turbine locations and properties over sea and over land. Data are stored as time series for individual grid points in a subdomain covering the Netherlands. More information on:
