Please note that, as Hong Kong has complex topography and large variations in the extent of urbanization, there are significant variations in wind speed and direction over different parts of the territory. A number of methods are attempted and they include selections of annual maximum or storm wind speeds, use of the V or V2 data, and standard Gumbel or Lieblein BLUE methods.

In this paper, the same analysis is applied to the Waglan Island wind data of Hong Kong from 1975 to 2005. These records have enabled estimates of extreme wind speed at the ground surface to be made. In some cases, there could also be noticeable differences between stations within the same region due to the elevation of anemometer and influence of surrounding environment. In this paper, the same analysis is applied to the Waglan Island wind data of Hong Kong from 1975 to 2005.

This paper describes a statistical extreme wind analysis for Hong Kong and Macau. The anemometer stations chosen for Macau are located on hills and the records are affected by the surrounding topography and buildings. Reference Wind Speed 1.3 The Hong Kong Observatory was founded in 1883 and has been keeping almost complete records of wind speed from 1884 onwards. Anemometer correction for the wind speed changes is carried out in the wind tunnel with topography models of Macau and Taipa. Corrected record of hourly mean wind speeds from 1952 to 2005 is subjected to extreme value analysis. 0 Please note that, as Hong Kong has complex topography and large variations in the extent of urbanization, there are significant variations in wind speed and direction over different parts of the territory. h�bbd`b`����x��010t�:&�_���~0��` lY� 6 ��� �$�� %*Pi�a�fS=������� H� 1?8z��&��p���]S �JG� \�\j'Lב� s���D XeG �Vf`��8�$#h 6�!�����n"�o^���j���t�/*
