Description

Summarizes the wind time series for a single grid point, as created by calc_grid_wind.

Usage

1
2
summarize_grid_wind(grid_wind, tint = 0.25, gust_duration_cut = 20,
  sust_duration_cut = 20)

Arguments

grid_wind

A dataframe with a time series of modeled wind speeds at a location, as created by calc_grid_wind.

tint

Interval (in hours) to which to interpolate the tracks. The default is 0.25 (i.e., 15 minutes)

gust_duration_cut

The wind speed, in meters per second, to use as a cutoff point for determining the duration of gust winds. The function will calculate the minutes during the storm when surface-level gust winds were above this speed at the location.

sust_duration_cut

The wind speed, in meters per second, to use as a cutoff point for determining the duration of gust winds. The function will calculate the minutes during the storm when surface-level gust winds were above this speed at the location.

Value

Returns a one-row matrix with wind characteristics for a single location. The wind characteristics given are:
