The measurement of wind is one of the most important factors in weather prediction. Wind is the movement of air caused by uneven heating of the earth’s surface. It occurs in light breezes that are locally generated due to heating of an immediate landmass, to winds on a grand scale spanning continents caused by solar heating. Besides being used as part of a weather monitoring station there are many other situations where knowledge of the wind condition helps in decision-making such as pollution control, safety of tall structures, control of wind turbines, studies on the effects of wind on crops, manovering of ships and aircraft landing systems. Wind speed is measured with an anemometer; the word anemometer comes from the Greek anemos meaning wind, plus meter.
