             abstract = "Offshore wind power generation is expanding in several regions of 
                         the globe but in Brazil, particularly in its southern portion, 
                         prospection studies are still scarce. Thus, the present study aims 
                         to assess wind variability and power density (PD) simulated by the 
                         Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF) in the Southern 
                         Brazil, focusing on the offshore region. We compared the results 
                         of the simulations with data from the Blended Sea Winds (BSW) 
                         product, who quantify wind velocity over oceans. The numerical 
                         experiment was carried out during a 5-year period, between 00UTC 
                         of January 01, 2006 until 00UTC of December 31, 2010. The domain 
                         has a total of 340 grid points in the zonal direction, 180 points 
                         in the meridional direction and 35 vertical layers with the top 
                         set at 50 hPa. We concluded that the WRF model can be used as a 
                         tool to evaluate the potential for wind power generation in the 
                         Southern Brazil region. On the other hand, the model did not 
                         perform well in simulating wind in the regions near the Brazil and 
                         Falklands Currents. This shortcoming may be corrected by coupling 
                         the WRF with an oceanic model and using parameterizations which 
                         more adequately represent turbulence in the planetary boundary 
                         layer.",
