Short summary
As offshore wind turbines' sizes are increasing, thorough knowledge of wind characteristics in the marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) is becoming crucial to help improve offshore wind turbine design and reliability. The present study discusses the wind characteristics at the first offshore wind farm, Vindeby, and compares them with the wind measurements at the FINO1 platform. Consistent wind characteristics are found between Vindeby measurements and the FINO1 measurements.
