Title
Technical Paper Climate Change Implications for Design Wind Speeds Vol 3 No 1 1990
Author/s

S J Reid
Abstract

The difference, from present conditions, of the surface pressure pattern in a greenhouse scenario for NZ at about the year 2050, has been inferred from current trends. It may lead to shifts in predominant wind direction. There does not appear to be a significant effect on basic wind speeds for design. The increased frequency of tropical cyclones which would be associated with an increase of surface temperature of 3⁰C in the NZ area appears to be important and would lead to tropical cyclones becoming the dominant cause of high winds, for design purposes, in Auckland and probably over much of the North Island.
