Abstract

During 1 May–15 June 2017, some 70+ scientists, engineers, and support personnel converged on Vale do Cobrão, located in central Portugal within the municipality of Vila Velha de Ródão, for a unique field campaign designed to study microscale details of mountain winds (Fig. 1). Dubbed Perdigão (partridge in Portuguese) after a nearby village, the campaign culminated a decade-long preparation of European Union (EU) scientists to create a New Digital EU Wind Atlas (NEWA) at microscale resolution (see sidebar). The topography of Vale do Cobrão resembles a textbook case of a two-dimensional (2D) valley within parallel ridges, with annual wind climatology perpendicular to the ridges.
