A preliminary study of the wind characteristics of the northern zone of the Yucatan Peninsula, Eastern Mexico was undertaken for offshore and coastal sites using data measured from three measurement sites. Ten minutes averages of wind speeds, wind directions and ambient temperatures at two different heights were recorded from data measured over a year. The usual wind statistics analysis was undertaken to evaluate the atmospheric stability and the relation between the offshore and onshore winds. The results were compared with the models previously proposed by Monin-Obukhov and by Hsu.
