Abstract : Three sets of wind profiles (surface to 1, surface to 2, and surface to 10 km) have been derived for a pilot station from the midlatitudes (Chateauroux, France). These profiles were parameterized by establishing mathematical-stochastic models for further application, reducing the original input by a factor 1:1000. The coefficients for these computer models are given in this report by the individual month; six levels of probability (50, 68, 84, 95, 97.7 and 99 percent) have been computed for January and July as examples.
