Table 1 Statistics of the mean and maximum wind speeds in the analysis areas. The results of mean and maximum wind speeds during the simulated time period obtained in the 1 km grid and 200 m grid cases for the areas A, B, and C are summarized. The statistics are the area-mean, area-maximum, and spatial variance values computed from the temporal mean and maximum winds in each analysis area
