Abstract : A statistical summary in the form of wind component profiles for the annual and individual monthly periods for Patrick Air Force Base (Cape Canaveral), Florida. The profiles presented provide an envelope about the three-sigma (99.865 percent cumulative frequency) values for the headwind, tailwind, right crosswind, and left crosswind components with reference to a missile flight azimuth of 45 degrees east of north. These data are intended primarily for use in range safety studies. (Author)
