Description:

Abstract:

Annual average offshore wind speed for the Atlantic Coast (Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Virginia) at a 90 meter height.

Purpose:

Provide information on the wind resource development potential for the Atalntic Coast (Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Virginia).

Supplemental_Information:

The offshore wind speed estimates are a combination of several datasets. Data for Georgia, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire were produced by AWS Truepower for offshore mapping projects using their MesoMap system and historical weather data. The offshore wind resource data for Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia were also produced by AWS Truepower, but as part of onshore wind mapping projects. Speed data for these states were interpolated to 90-m height and extrapolated to 50 nautical miles by NREL. All raster datasets had a 200 m spatial resolution with projections including UTM zones 17, 18 and 19, WGS 84. This shapefile was generated from the merged raster datasets and then projected to Geographic Decimal Degrees, datum WGS 84.
