Metocean data

Postby Sesto.Avolio » Thu Aug 30, 2018 3:20 pm

Sorry to post here, but there is no specific forum for Metocean data, and I think this matches enough.
In https://nwtc.nrel.gov/metocean there are data for 3 standard sites, but the excel lacks description of parameters; furthermore, there is no indication of the height above sea level of wind speed .

I think all this information should be in the mentioned paper "Stewart, G. M., Robertson, A., Jonkman, J., and Lackner, M. A. "The creation of a comprehensive metocean data set for offshore wind turbine simulations." Wind Energy, 19 (2016): 1151–1159. doi: 10.1002/we.1881." but there is no download link for it.

Is it possible to have a copy of it?
Any help will be appreciated

Dear Sesto,

The link to Stewart et al's paper is provided on that site and is repeated here: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/we.1881.

Thanks Jason, I saw it, but only the summary is freely available.
For the full paper looks like I'll have to buy it.
