wind speed

wind speedWhat is (wind speed)?WindAs空 気MovesSpeedThat is. Japanese Meteorological AgencyThe unit normally used inm / s(So-called speed per second), internationallyknot (kt) is used. For measurementAnemometerIs used.


In Japan, when we simply say "wind speed", it is about 10 above the ground in surface weather observation.Meters10 at the height ofMinuteAmongAverage wind speedRepresents 0.25secondAverage 3 seconds (12 samples) updated everyInstantaneous wind speedTo say[1].. Also, the maximum value of the average wind speedMaximum wind speed, Maximum instantaneous wind speedMaximum instantaneous wind speed("Instantaneous maximum wind speed" is misused[2]). As the number of high-rise buildings increases in urban areas, it is difficult to accurately measure the wind flow near the ground, so the height is several tens of meters or more above the ground.AnemometerIs often installed.

If you want to measure the wind speed but don't have an anemometer,Meteorological Agency Beaufort ScaleorBeaufort Wind ClassBased on the above, the wind speed is estimated by the wind power judged from the condition of the feature or the sea surface.

The value obtained by dividing the maximum instantaneous wind speed in a certain time by the average wind speed.Gust rateGenerally, it is about 1.5 to 2.0. Also, the wind pressure is the square of the wind speed.ProportionalIt is known that it grows larger.

In general, the average wind speed is faster on the sea than on land, and the gust rate is smaller. Wind speeds range from global atmospheric conditions to structural atmospheric turbulence caused by buildings.(I.e.Affected by the difference.

It can be said that a constant wind speed is maintained throughout the year in western Europe, where westerlies constantly blow due to the influence of the global atmospheric conditions. Smaller examples are highs and lows,typhoonThe wind speed observed when a tropical cyclone such as is approaching is relatively fast. Tornadoes are a prominent example of smaller ones, with maximum instantaneous wind speeds exceeding 100 m / s being observed. Also,High-rise buildingIn the area whereBuilding styleBlows.

It is a tornado strength classificationFujita scale(F scale),Improved Fujita Scale(EF scale) is also classified by the estimated maximum wind speed.

In addition, the following are expressions of wind strength used in the announcements and weather forecasts of the Japan Meteorological Agency and each meteorological station.

QuietWind speed less than 0.3m / s
Slightly strong windWinds of 10 m / s or more and less than 15 m / s
Strong windWinds of 15 m / s or more and less than 20 m / s
Very strong windWinds of 20 m / s or more and less than 30 m / s
Fierce windWind speed of 30 m / s or more or maximum instantaneous wind speed of 50 m / s or more
