Raw data available from Jan 1, 1979, to Dec 31, 2010, at hourly temporal resolution, with a spatial resolution of 0.313 degrees (latitude) x 0.312 degrees (longitude). Dataset contains the global wind speed in meters per second (m/s) and wind direction in degrees from True North. Purpose: To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Result: missing Lineage: Lineage: Statement: missing Process step: Process step: Description: (1) Data were downloaded from: https://rda.ucar.edu/datasets/ds093.1/ using wget file retrival software. (2) GRIB2 files were converted to NetCDFs. (3) From the hourly global composites, a monthly mean for every year was generated. (4) The monthly means were averaged together for all years (1979-2010) so that each month of the year has a monthly mean grid. (5) Annual means were average together for all monthly means. (6) ASC Files were converted to point files. (7) Point files projected into WGS 1984 GCS (8) Point files were clipped to the Economic Exclusion Zone (EEZ). (9) All point files for wind speed and direction were combined into a single point file with Variable and Month / Annual Summaries as the column headers. (10) Point file was projected into WGS 1984 World Mercator.
