EOOffshore: CCMP v0.2.1.NRT Wind Data for the Irish Continental Shelf Region

O'Callaghan, Derek; McBreen, Sheila

EOOffshore is a Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) funded project, which commenced in June 2020 in the School of Physics in University College Dublin (UCD). It presents a case study that demonstrates the utility of the Pangeo software ecosystem in the development of offshore wind speed and power density estimates, increasing wind measurement coverage of offshore renewable energy assessment areas in the Irish Continental Shelf (ICS) region. It has involved the creation of a new wind data catalog for this region, consisting of a collection of analysis-ready, cloud-optimized (ARCO) datasets featuring up to 21 years of available in situ, reanalysis, and satellite observation wind data products.

This particular catalog data set (eooffshore_ics_ccmp_v02_1_nrt_wind.zarr) contains 2015-2021 Cross-Calibrated Multi-Platform (CCMP) v0.2.1.NRT 6-hourly wind products for the ICS region, where wind speed and direction are calculated from the uwnd and vwnd variables. The source data products are generated by Remote Sensing Systems (RSS). This CCMP data set was used in the EOOffshore project outputs presented (Scalable Offshore Wind Analysis With Pangeo) at the Meeting Exascale Computing Challenges with Compression and Pangeo 2022 EGU General Assembly session.

Example usage of the CCMP data set in EOOffshore:
