Fetch model of the Falkland Islands

The dataset is a raster file that describes an annual composite fetch model of the Falkland Islands derived from wind statistics. The values of the dataset indicate the length of water (in metres) over which the annual distribution of wind has blown over.

Lineage The data used annual wind statistics from www.windfinder.com and scripts created by Finlayson (2005) and Rohweder (2008). Individual fetch length datasets were created for each cardinal direction, then overlayed into a single dataset, with each cardinal point weighted according to an annual wind distribution. Values in this composite fetch model should be reagrded as relative i.e., low values indicate relatively lower fetch experienced over the course of a year when compared to higher values. The data were also reclassed using data histogram values into categorical values of 1 to 10, 1 representing low fetch values and 10 representing high fetch values. Raw and reclassed fetch data are both available.
