Abstract 50-year return period wind speeds have been calculated using yearly maxima from daily surface data and the Corine Land Use Land Cover database. By applying a single consistent methodology to wind speed data, coastal stations individually show more scatter, however, observed differences between Ireland, France and the United Kingdom decrease greatly when the north–east travelling extra-tropical cyclones are taken into account. Most inland stations show an appreciable degree of… CONTINUE READING
