Data repository for measurements from 12 wind masts in Pakistan. Data will be uploaded in batches, on a monthly basis, and will transmit daily reports for wind speed, wind direction, air pressure, relative humidity and temperature. For access to maps and GIS layers, please visit the Global Wind Atlas: Please cite as: [Data/information/map obtained from the] “World Bank via, under a project funded by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP).

Question Created 01.24.2019 06:51

Why is temperature for Quetta Data more at higher altitude? How can temperature be more at higher altitude?

Dear Visitor,

The configuration for the Quetta mast is a 76m mast, which is different compared to the other masts. The temperature was previously given at the height of 76m (columns BI-BL) starting on 14/05/2016 to measure. The height was then corrected to 61m (columns BE-BH) starting on 19/12/2016. Hence, from 19/12/2016, T76 is discarded.

Please consider the following dates for Quetta measurements:
14/05/2016 – 18/12/2016 – T76 (columns BI-BL)
19/12/2016 – 30/09/2018 – T61 (columns BE-BH)

questions about wind speed Created 12.27.2018 15:11

sir what is meant by a20_wind_speed and a40_wind_speed also what are the units of measurments

Dear Visitor,
The ‘a’ in e.g. a20_wind_speed stands for altitude. Hence ‘a20_wind_speed’ is the wind speed at 20 meters above ground and ‘a40_wind_speed’ is the wind speed at 40 meters above ground.
Wind speed in this dataset is measured in meters per second (m/s).
For more information on headers and the units for each single headers, the details can be found in attachment files named ‘Headers’. For example: Wind-Measurements_Pakistan_Chakri_WB-ESMAP_Header.
