Abstract

The purpose of the study described is to demonstrate that, with a combined theoretical-empirical approach, winds over a lake can be obtained from transformed wind speeds at nearby land stations. The theoretical results provide a basis for comparison of many empirical data sets and establish a rational means of analyzing the expected differences between winds over land and those over a marine surface. This in turn affords a means of examining systematic variations in the ratio of wind speeds over a lake to wind speed over land.
