Abstract:

In this handbook the wind conditions for the Kamchatskaya Oblast are covered for the period from 1936 through 1964. For tables 9 and 9a data from the period 1891-1964 are used. Prolonged observations of wind velocity are necessary because from year to year considerable variations in the frequency of wind velocities are noted. The frequencies of high velocities are subject to the greatest variations. The handbook includes materials from 58 meteorological stations which are existing now or operated earlier on the territory of Kamchatskaya Oblast. The different characteristics of wind velocity and direction give an idea of the wind conditions in Kamchatskaya Oblast. The material is presented in the form of tables for the individual stations with an explanatory text for them. The text portion contains a brief description of the general regularities of wind conditions, a knowledge of which is necessary for the correct utilization of the materials in the handbook. KR
