Extreme Value Analysis of Wind Speed Observations over Switzerland


Accurate assessment of the magnitude and frequency of extreme wind speed is of fundamental importance for many safety, engineering and financial applications. However, extreme winds are coupled with local, small-scale phenomena, so that their spatial distribution is very inhomogeneous. So far, only limited information on extreme wind statistics was available for Swiss measuring stations.
