Interactive comment on "Large-Eddy Simulation Sensitivities to Variations of Configuration and Forcing Parameters in Canonical Boundary-Layer Flows for Wind Energy Applications" by Anonymous Referee #1

Jeffrey Mirocha
General comments: The paper analyses the sensitivity of large-eddy simulations to various model configuration and physical forcing parameters. Simulations results of three different LES models are compared among each other as well as to mast measurements. The objective is to prove that LES are a valid tool to provide flow parameters relevant to wind energy applications. Although LES as a tool for assessing wind energy relevant flow parameters is not novel C1
