In this study, two sites were investigated in the southern region of Iraq: Ali AL-Gharbi and AL-Salman in Mesan and AL-Muthana provinces, respectively. A theoretical extrapolation between wind speed and height was carried out for both locations each month using the Logarithmic Law. Power Law was also applied to achieve calculations of wind shear coefficient (α) by using the actual data collected from the meteorological mast installed in each site at three levels of 10 m, 30 m, and 50 m, at an interval of ten minutes. To compare the effects of each law, two laws are employed.
