What is an Anemometer Or Anemograph?
An Anemometer or Anemograph (a recording anemometer) is derived from a Greek word “ Anemos” meaning “ Wind (The motion of air)”
However, we can say “A weather instrument used to measure wind force and speed is called an Anemometer.”

It is a meteorological device that is used for weather forecasting or more specifically to measure wind speed or the force of the wind or wind direction. It is also used in aircraft that are heavier than air.
