Abstract:

A statistical survey of the wind veering in the lowest two kilometers is made for the oceans of the Northern Hemisphere. The data sample consists of over 100,000 pibal and rawin soundings. This includes observations made from ships in the 0-70 degrees latitude belt and observations at atolls and small islands in the 5-35 degrees latitude belt. The wind veering is stratified by latitude, season, wind direction and wind speed.
