The data set includes hourly wind speed observations for 126 stations. The study included 13 stations in the province of New Brunswick, 35 – in New Foundland and Labrador, 23 – in Nova Scotia, 5 – in Prince Edward Island, and 50 in the province of Quebec. All stations passed the modified Mann-Kendall (MMK) test for serially correlated data using Hamed & Rao variance correction approach, so the samples can be considered stationary (i.e. there is no monotonic trend in the data). Moreover, the stations passed the Bayesian change point detection procedure of Seidou et al. without detection of shifts. “Government of Canada,” Historic data. https://climat.meteo.gc.ca/historical_data/search_historic_data_e.html (accessed Sep. 02, 2022).
