The Mesomap is the most advanced wind mapping system in use today, and is also the most widely tested and validated. It has several advantages over traditional wind resource assessment methods. First, it operates without the need for surface wind data. Second, it simulates important meteorological phenomena not captured in most other models, such as katabatic (downslope) mountain winds, channeling through mountain passes, lake and sea breezes, low-level jets, temperature inversions, and surface roughness effects. Finally, mesomap directly simulates long-term wind conditions, thereby eliminating the need for uncertain climatological adjustments.Mesomap characterizes wind resources in a region by recreating actual weather and wind conditions for 366 days randomly sampled from a 15-year historical record. For different mesomaps of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico make appropriat selection below.
