Annual average monthly wind speed in Heihe river basin (1961-2010)

Annual average monthly wind speed in Heihe river basin (1961-2010)

The station data information of 21 regular meteorological observation stations in Heihe River Basin and surrounding areas and 13 national benchmark stations around Heihe River provided by Heihe plan data management center are used to make statistics and collation of daily wind speed and calculate the monthly wind speed data of 1961-2010 for many years. The spatial stability analysis is carried out to calculate the variation coefficient. If the variation coefficient is greater than 100%, the geographical weighted regression is used to calculate the relationship between the station and the geographical terrain factors, and the monthly wind speed distribution trend is obtained; if the variation coefficient is less than or equal to 100%, the common least square regression is used to calculate the relationship between the station wind speed value and the geographical terrain factors (longitude and latitude, elevation, slope, aspect, etc.) The trend of monthly wind speed distribution is obtained, and the residual after removing the trend is fitted and corrected by HASM (high accuracy surface modeling method). Finally, the monthly average wind speed distribution of the Heihe River Basin in 1961-2010 is obtained by adding the trend surface results and the residual correction results. Time resolution: monthly average wind speed for many years from 1961 to 2010. Spatial resolution: 500M.
