Off-Shore Wind Speed Data Analysis

Utilization of off-shore wind resources is pivotal for electricity decarbonization, and historical off-shore wind speed data are a must-have to for siting off-shore wind farms. However off-shore wind speed data above 90-meter are hard to obtain due to obvious difficulty in the measurement. In this project, the student will try to reconstruct off-shore wind speed data using sea surface buoy measurements. The student will use available off-shore wind speed data and construct correlation with buoy measurements, and then use buoy measurements to reconstruct wind speed in sites without historical wind speed records.
