Abstract. Since 2014, 11 tall meteorological masts have been erected in coastal areas of mid-Norway in order to provide observational data for a detailed description of the wind climate at several potential fjord crossing sites. The planned fjord crossings are part of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) Coastal Highway E39-project. The meteorological masts are 50–100 m high and located in complex terrain near the shoreline in Halsafjorden, Julsundet and Storfjorden in the Møre og Romsdal county of Norway. Observations of the three-dimensional wind vector are done at 2–4 levels in each mast, with a temporal frequency of 10 Hz. The dataset is corroborated with observed profiles of temperature at two masts, as well as precipitation, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity and dew point at one site. The first masts were erected in 2014 and the measurement campaign will continue to at least 2024. The current paper describes the observational setup and observations of key atmospheric parameters are presented and put in context with observations and climatological normals from a nearby reference weather station. The quality-controlled 10-minute and 10 Hz data as well as other meteorological parameters is publicly available through Arctic Data Centre (https://adc.met.no/datasets/10.21343/z9n1-qw63; Furevik et al., 2019).

Short summary
The Norwegian west coast is mountainous with narrow fjords. Local wind conditions at the shoreline in the fjords are often decoupled from the wind on the coast or in the mountains. Wind measurements are generally obtained at lighthouses or airports and thus do not represent the wind in the fjords. This paper describes wind, turbulence and other meteorological measurements from 11 masts in 3 fjords. The first masts were erected in 2014 and measurements will continue to at least 2024.
