Estimates of extreme wind speeds for various cumulative probabilities or return periods are made for 13 Thailand stations using the double-exponential distribution Annual Peak wind gusts for a 10 year period, 1956-1965, are used in the analysis. Comparison of expected peak gusts are made between stations and with stations in the interior United States. Seasonal and monthly differences in expected peak gusts are discussed. Correction factors for elevation differences and conversion factors to determine sustained winds are presented. Also given is the directions and occurrence times of extreme winds. Author
