Wind, wave, and current roses (last 24h)
Following convention, the spokes on the wind rose and the wave rose indicate the direction wind and waves are traveling from. The spokes on the current rose indicate direction the current is traveling to.
For all roses, the length of the spoke indicates frequency of that sighting, and color indicates magnitude (refer to the color scale for each rose). That is, the largest spoke is the most common direction, and the hottest color is the largest value.
For more information please see this article on the use of wind roses.
