Abstract
Wind variability at coastal areas is very high due to the effects of local topography, sea breezes, coastal katabic winds and boundary layer rolls. The analysis of anisotropic coastal areas, where the problem of the land-sea border is compounded by the preferential directions of air/water flows (e.g. topographic steering for channeled wind fields) poses a formidable challenge that lies at the core of this work. Over the land there is a large amount of meteorological stations, which together with...
