Description

Daily wind speeds are collected and examined to produce these histograms. A curve fitted to the histogram gives us a probability density function (PDF). We choose the best from the following functions: Gamma, max or min Gumbel, Weibull, Gaussian and Spline. The PDF allows us to estimate the 95th and 99th percentiles of the data.

The plots are shown for the entire year and for each season. The seasons are defined as follows:

  • Winter — DJF: December, January, February
  • Spring — MAM: March, April, May
  • Summer — JJA: June, July, August
  • Autumn — SON: September, October, November
