The classical statistical study of the wind speed in the atmospheric surface layer is made generally from the analysis of the three habitual components that perform the wind data, that is, the component W-E, the component S-N and the vertical component, considering these components independent. When the goal of the study of these data is the Aeolian energy, so is when wind is studied from an energetic point of view and the squares of wind components can be considered as compositional variables. To do so, each component has to be divided by the module of the corresponding vector. In this work the theoretical analysis of the components of the wind as compositional data is presented and also the conclusions that can be obtained from the point of view of the practical applications as well as those that can be derived from the application of this technique in different conditions of weather ​
