Parameters Measured

Standard Deviation of Horizontal Wind Direction

Standard Deviation of Horizontal Wind Direction is measured in degrees compass.

Standard deviation of horizontal wind direction is a measure of the variability of the direction from which the wind is blowing. Zero standard deviation means that there is no variability in the wind direction, thus no deviation. A high standard deviation indicates a large variation in the direction from which the wind is blowing.
