Mean Wind Speed

time-averaged wind speed, averaged over a specified time interval

NOTE The mean wind speed varies with elevation above mean sea level and the averaging time interval; a standard reference elevation is 10 m and a standard time interval is 1 h. See also sustained wind speed (3.37) and gust wind speed (3.8).
