Describes both the macro and micro meteorological structure of strong winds in the earths boundary layer. Discusses the wind speed spectrum, characteristics of mean flow and gustiness and the structure of turbulence. Concludes that almost all theproperties of the wind that might be needed in structural design can be estimated from the mean-wind field and the groundroughness. Suggests areas for further research.
