Funding Acknowledgements

This work was partly supported by the Danish project 'Mesoscale variability and the variability of wind and production of offshore wind farms' (contract number PSO-7141), the Danish ForskEL programme through the project 'Radar@Sea' (ForskEL 2009-01-0226) and the European Commission project 'Safewind' (contract number 213740). The contribution of C. L. Vincent was partly supported by the Danish Council for Independent Research-Technology and Production Sciences (case number 10-093196) individual post-doctoral project. The authors are grateful to Dong Energy and Vattenfall for permission to use observational data from the Horns Rev I wind farm, and to Dr. Jason Knievel of NCAR for advice about the initial set-up of the idealized model. Detailed and helpful comments from the two anonymous reviewers are greatly appreciated.
