speed.wind: Wind speed and wind direction data

Description Usage Format Details Source References Examples

Description

This dataset consists of hourly observations of wind direction and wind speed in winter season (from November to February) from 2003 until 2012 in the Atlantic coast of Galicia (NW–Spain). Data are registered by a buoy located at longitude -0.210E and latitude 43.500N in the Atlantic Ocean. The dataset speed.wind2, analized in Oliveira et al. (2013), is a subset of speed.wind which is obtained by taking the observations with a lag period of 95 hours.

Format

speed.wind is a data frame with 19488 observations on six variables: day, month, year, hour, wind speed (in m/s) and wind direction (in degrees). speed.wind2 is a subset with 200 observations.

Details

Data contains NAs. There is no data in November 2005, December 2005, January 2006, February 2006, February 2007, February 2009 and November 2009. Months of November 2004, December 2004, January 2007, December 2009 are not fully observed.
