Atmospheric flow in complex terrain has received increased attention in recent years because o fits numerous applications, including air pollution, contaminant dispersion, aviation, Alpine warfare, and wind energy harvesting. While most relevant past research has focused on weather prediction at mesoscale (resolution on the order of km), wind energy, dispersion and fire-fighting applications demand accuracy of predictions at microscale (tens to hundreds of meters). To this end, ERANET+, a European Union funding instrument, has granted a consortium of EU scientists a megaproject to provide the wind energy sector with more detailed resource mapping capabilities. This is to be accomplished through the creation and publication of a digital New European Wind Atlas based on the development of improved models and model chains for wind energy physics.
