Statistical data from a world-wide wind energy resource
assessment is provided for a selection of stations in Central
and South America, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the
Pacific Islands. The input data span the period from 1902 to
1978, but the input period of record for each station is highly
variable. The statistics include average wind speed and wind
power density by season and annually.
Wind speed frequencies, covariances of wind speed and
direction, and wind power densities are provided for 22 Wyoming
stations as part of a separate wind resource assessment. The
input period for this study is approximately 1938-1978.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
