National Solar Radiation Data Base and Wind
Does the National Solar Radiation Data Base contain wind
speed measurements? If so, what is the height these measurements were taken?
Yes, wind speed is listed in m/s. The meteorological data comes
directly from the NCDC archive, so the height of the wind
measurements is the standard 10 m.
