About this book

This book offers an introduction to the meteorological boundary conditions for power generation from wind – both onshore and offshore, and provides meteorological information for the planning and running of this important renewable energy source. It includes the derivation of wind laws and wind-profile descriptions, especially those above the logarithmic surface layer, and discusses winds over complex terrains and nocturnal low-level jets. This updated and expanded second edition features new chapters devoted to the efficiency of large wind parks and their wakes and to offshore wind energy.

About the authors

Stefan Emeis is a meteorologist. He received his PhD at the University of Bonn, Germany in 1985 and his habilitation at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany in 1994. He is currently a senior scientist and research group leader at the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany and adjunct professor of meteorology at the University of Cologne, Germany. His research interests are the structure and turbulence of the atmospheric boundary layers, surface-based remote sensing of the atmosphere, the meteorological prerequisites for the usage of wind energy and all aspects of climate change.

He is the editor-in-chief of the scientific journal “Meteorologische Zeitschrift” and (co)author of more than 80 scientific papers and of several books.
