    • A wind field downscaling strategy based on domain segmentation and transfer functions 

      Barcons, Jordi; Avila, Matias; Folch, Arnau (Wiley, 2018-02-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper presents a novel methodology for mesoscale‐to‐microscale downscaling of near‐surface wind fields. The model chain consists on the Weather Research and Forecast mesoscale model and the Alya‐CFDWind microscale ...
    • Diurnal cycle RANS simulations applied to wind resource assessment 

      Barcons, Jordi; Avila, Matias; Folch, Arnau (Wiley, 2019-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      Microscale computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models can be used for wind resource assessment on complex terrains. These models generally assume neutral atmospheric stratification, an assumption that can lead to inaccurate ...
    • The making of the New European Wind Atlas – Part 2: Production and evaluation 

      Dörenkämper, Martin; Olsen, Bjarke T.; Witha, Björn; Hahmann, Andrea N.; Barcons, Jordi (Copernicus Publications, 2020)
      Article
      Open Access
      This is the second of two papers that document the creation of the New European Wind Atlas (NEWA). In Part 1, we described the sensitivity experiments and accompanying evaluation done to arrive at the final mesoscale model ...
