Clear
SKU: COUNTRY-C5A-AFG-wind_speed Category:

Wind speed data as simulated over Afghanistan (West-Asia) by 22 climate models from 1951 to 2100 with (RCP4.5) or without (RCP8.5) climate change mitigation policy. Country wind speed data are available at multi-sites each 0.50° (~50km) over the country. Read more technical information in the Specifications tab above. wind speed afghanistan west-asia
