 bin.wind.records(winddir,windspeed,ndir=8,radians=FALSE,
  speed.breaks=c(0,10,20,30))

Arguments

winddir

A vector of wind directions.

windspeed

A vector of wind speeds corresponding to the above directions.

ndir

Number of direction bins in a compass circle.

radians

Whether wind directions are in radians.

speed.breaks

Minimum wind speed for each speed bin.

Details

bin.wind.records bins a number of wind direction and speed records into a matrix of percentages of observations that can be used to display a cumulative wind rose with oz.windrose The defaults are those used by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

Value

A matrix of percentages in which the rows represent wind speed categories and the columns represent wind direction categories.
