Short summary
This work has analyzed historical data of 10 min averaged wind speed measurements to investigate the accuracy of the commonly used equations for describing the wind velocity as a function of the height above ground. The results of analyzing data from a wide range of sites show that the common equations do not sufficiently describe certain physical phenomena, especially at offshore and coastal locations. The results imply that there is a need for more advanced models.
