Analyzing the impact of atmospheric stability on vertical wind profile enables to assess the available wind resource in order to determine optimal locations for wind turbines. Different methods have been proposed to study the degree of stability of the atmosphere. These include the Richardson number, the profile method and the Monin-Obukhov length. Focus is here on the stability issue and its influence on the wind shear coefficient which plays an important role in processing experimental data with regards to the atmospheric surface-layer turbulence. Data collected from the Cabauw meteorological mast were analyzed in order to determine the characteristics of the wind resource at that location and to estimate the wind resource for power generation as affected by stability.
