Researchers are now gathered for the Perdigão field campaign, an effort to study wind flow physics at scales down to tens of meters. The effort should help engineers harness wind energy in Europe.

The Perdigão project is part of the effort to publish a digital New European Wind Atlas. Perdigão’s EU group is headed by Jakob Mann of the Technical University of Denmark, with Jose Palma of University of Porto as the Portuguese lead principal investigator. Other European participants include DLR (Germany), INEGI (Portugal), and the Portuguese Meteorological Service (IPMA).
