Item Identification

Title: Offshore Mean Annual Wind Speed at 90 m
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2022-05-05
Abstract:

These data represents the predicted mean annual wind speeds at 90 m height presented at a spatial resolution of 200 m. Areas with annual average wind speed of 7 meters per second (m/s) and greater at 90 m height are generally considered to have a wind resource suitable for offshore development. The source data is from 2002 through 2008.

Purpose:

To support ocean planning activities pursuant to the Executive Order Regarding the Ocean Policy to Advance the Economic, Security, and Environmental Interests of the United States, the Energy Policy Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rivers and Harbors Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act.
