Abstract

A high-resolution wind speed data set acquired at the Field Research Facility in Duck, NC during the passage of Hurricane Bob (1991) is evaluated in terms of longitudinal and lateral turbulence intensities, and longitudinal integral scales. The calculated parameters are analyzed with regard to mean wind speeds and direction and are separated into stationary and nonstationary segments.
