Abstract: In order to increase the use of the winds as energy sources is essential to study the periodical patterns of the wind resources by means of high quality data obtained from measurement stations, specially configured to evaluate the energy available in the winds. The present work shows the preliminary results of the network of ultrasonic wind sensors which were installed by the Autonomous University of Yucatan at the North region of the Yucatán Peninsula. Located in the tropical region at the Eastern of Mexico, the study area had been studied previously just by means of the wind data from the local meteorological stations. The developed network is formed by six towers between 40m and 50m height located around the main parts of the North of Yucatan Peninsula. The preliminary result shows a highly directional behaviour of the winds with better wind resources at the sites on the coast line.
