CONCLUSION The seasonal and regional variations of the gust factors in Hong Kong were studied using the wind speed data recorded from 1990 to 2008 at 13 automatic weather stations distributed over the territory. %PDF-1.6 %���� This paper also attempts to recommend wind directionality factors for Hong Kong and Macau.

The Hong Kong Observatory maintains a large number of measuring stations.

Das Typschiff OOCL Hong Kong. Anemometer correction for the wind speed changes is carried out in the wind tunnel with topography models of Macau and Taipa.

Arguably Hong Kong’s most intense cyclone. The anemometer stations chosen for Macau are located on hills and the records are affected by the surrounding topography and buildings. In some cases, there could also be noticeable differences between stations within the same region due to the elevation of anemometer and influence of surrounding environment.

The resulting 50-year return mean wind speed is 52.0 m/s for Waglan and 50.7 m/s for Macau. In this paper, the same analysis is applied to the Waglan Island wind data of Hong Kong from 1975 to 2005. It claimed 130 lives and left 53 missing and at least 72,000 people homeless. %%EOF The hourly wind speed of 126km/h was the second highest on record at the time, with speeds even averaging about 144km/h for a short period.

In this paper, the same analysis is applied to the Waglan Island wind data of Hong Kong from 1975 to 2005. The user of EMSD's Wind Resource Maps should be aware that the wind resource data and related energy figures provided by this website are for general information only and are all subject to uncertainties, one reason being that the highly complex terrain of Hong Kong has stretched the limits of the wind flow modelling software employed in developing the wind resource data. Please note that, as Hong Kong has complex topography and large variations in the extent of urbanization, there are significant variations in wind speed and direction over different parts of the territory.

Please note that, as Hong Kong has complex topography and large variations in the extent of urbanization, there are significant variations in wind speed and direction over different parts of the territory. All mean wind speeds are corrected to the standard condition of strong wind blowing over the sea surface and at a height of 250 m. This paper also repeats the analysis for Macau wind records incorporating a number of improvements.
