Abstract

In this study we analyze the surface wind variability over selected areas of the Greek territory by comparing a 3-Km spatial resolution simulation performed with the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model for the summer months of 2013 with actual surface measurements. Daily 36hrs runs at 12 UTC were driven by FLN (1 deg x 1 deg) data for the period of 11 July 2013 to 17 July 2013. Various verification statistics such as BIAS, RMSE and DACC for wind speed and direction were used to gauge the mesoscale model performance.
