  • Abstract The statistical characteristics of the winds at the Isthmus of Tehuantepec and their seasonal and interannual variability are studied through the analysis of several datasets and a reconstruction of the winds for a 31-yr period. Observations show that the long-term monthly mean wind speeds and frequency of occurrence of northerly winds have a strong seasonal signal, with maximum values during December–January, minimum during May–June, and a relative maximum in July. The frequency… CONTINUE READING
