Cumulative wind energy plot for
winter seasons 90/91 through 96/97. Winds were measured at the National
Weather Service station in Lake Charles, LA (LCH). Direction refers
to the direction from which the wind is blowing (where 0 degrees is from
the north). Most winter seasons have a bimodal distribution of wind
energy focused around northerly (typically centered near 30 degrees) and
southerly (typically centered near 180 degrees), though there are exceptions
to this (91/92 and 92/93). The 94/95 winter season was a relatively
weak year in terms of wind energy. Wind energy is used as a predictor
to the Geomorphic Impact Index.
