Question:
Does the National Solar Radiation Data Base contain wind speed measurements? If so, what is the height these measurements were taken?


Replies:
Thomas,

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.
