Wind speed and direction derived from ASAR - Denmark
This image shows Denmark end the wind fields over the North Sea. The wind fields are derived
from radar observations, the speed values range from 0 to 20 rn/s which is represented by the the
size and color of the arrows. Studies using wind field observations during longer periods provide
insight in the area’s clean energy potential. False coloring has been applied to sea and land to an
original black and white radar image.
