Winds occur due to gradients in atmospheric pressure and play an important role in controlling climate and weather. Wind data have been used by NOAA scientists to assess the relationship between physical and biological factors and interannual variability of fish recruitment (Hermann et. al., 1996, Megrey et. al., 1995, Bailey and Macklin, 1994).
