Wind Monitoring Duration & Data recovery

The minimum monitoring duration may vary from a few minutes to a number of years in order to produce more reliable results. One year is usually sufficient to determine the diurnal and seasonal variability of the wind. With the aid of a well-correlated, long-term reference station such as an airport, the inter-annual variability of the wind can also be estimated. The data recovery for all measured parameters should be at least 90% over the program’s duration, with any data gaps kept to a minimum (less than a week).
