The wind climate of Ireland has been calculated using the KarlsruheAtmospheric Mesoscale Model KAMM. The climatology is represented by 65frequency classes of geostrophic wind that were selected as equiangulardirection sectors and speed intervals with equal frequency in a sector. Theresults are compared with data from the European Wind Atlas which have beenanalyzed using the Wind Atlas Analysis and Application Program, WASP. Theprediction of the areas of higher wind power is fair. Stations with lowpower are overpredicted.
