This dataset contains information supporting the above titled paper in Meteorological Applications. The data includes the processed joint PDFs of wind speed and direction from 45 years of observations at half-hour intervals for Fiumicino and Ciampino airports. These data have been analysed by month and time of day to reveal the seasonal-diurnal variation of wind vector, and parameterised by fitting to the OEN model of Harris & Cook ( The joint PDFs are revealed to be a mixture of distinct seven diurnal and three non-diurnal wind-producing mechanisms including calms, local-scale and continental-scale land and sea breezes, transient along-shore jets, down-slope winds and a component attributed to the atmospheric tide. Values of the OEN parameters for each component are provided for the first fit, second fit, Fourier-smoothed and fuzzy OEN model. Charts are provided which compare the second-fit and smoothed model parameters over the seasonal and diurnal cycles. R scripts are provided to reproduce the figures in the paper and the additional charts, and to demonstrate accessing the data for further examination and analysis.
