|† These hourly timeseries datasets were generated by AWSTruepower who simulated wind speeds over the USVI using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model version 3.5. Initial and updated boundary conditions were provided by the ERA-Interim reanalysis dataset. Further details regarding these datasets can be found in the AWSTruepower Map Memo (936 KB PDF).
