Offshore Wind Wind Data Points
I'm working with the offshore wind model for Hawaii and I'm getting results that are unexpected. Specifically high values in areas of low wind resource. I would like to determine if this is due to the use of global wind data referenced here:
Elliott, D. L., C. G. Holladay, W. R. Barchet, H. P. Foote, and W. F. Sandusky. 1986. Wind energy resource atlas of the United States. DOE/CH 10093-4. Solar Technical Information Program, Richland, Washington..
I'm wondering if there is a way to view the wind data points BIN file to compare it to the most current offshore wind analysis.
I would also be interested to learn how the BIN files were created.
