About Weather Instruments

Traditional knowledge of wind is important to indigenous people for many reasons, including success in hunting and safety in travel. Knowledge of wind speed and direction are vital to many current professions, including accurate weather prediction. In this activity, students build an anemometer then measure wind speed in areas of differing topography to study how natural and man-made topography affects wind speed.
