Trends in the extreme wind speeds in the period 1871-2008 based on reanalysis
Trends in the annual 95th percentile of daily maximum wind speeds in the 20th century reanalysis data set (ensemble mean) during the period 1871–2008.
The trend is given in the units of the interannual standard deviation and plotted only when significant. The coloured circles indicate trends in the number of
