Wind Climate Analysis

The wind climate is a statistical description of frequent winds present in a given region. It describes how much of the time the wind speed is at a given level. The evaluation may be done without considering where the wind is coming from. However, when evaluated for a number of wind directions it describes the frequency of a given wind direction at a given wind speed.

Wind climate analysis has a number of applications in wind engineering. The wind climate is typically based on an analysis of nearby meteorological stations. The results are expressed in terms of wind speeds at a reference height of 10 m in a generic representation of the terrain present in focus area. For this information to be applicable for a specific focus area the reference wind speed must be translated using the specific wind environment for the given site.
