The History of Anemometers and How They Work

The ability to make wind readings and fully understand weather conditions has been prevalent since ancient times. As a matter of fact, the development of anemometer occurred in the 1400s and the actual design and function of the machine is still very similar to this day. Leon Alberti is credited with the invention of the vital and revolutionary instrument, which continues to be an integral part of meteorology to this day.

Many others followed in Alberti’s footsteps, trying to improve upon the invention including people such as the Mayans and Robert Hooke. However, it was John Robinson who improved the … Read more

The New Age of Weather

For those who may not know, anemometers are devices that are meant to measure the speed of wind among other variations. The first one was created in the 1400’s and haven’t changed so much in concept since that time. Over the years many other inventors have made their own updated versions that have evolved over time. Some changes have been made down the line such as the use of a mechanical wheel and hemisphere-shaped cups. There are a few different types of anemometers and each work a bit differently, but with the same goals in mind.

Handheld Anemometers – a smart product for measuring the wind speed

You all have heard weather forecasts, about how fast the wind is blowing; but have you ever wondered how the wind speed is measured? The wind speed varies over a wide range and it isn’t something that can be measured using your stopwatch. So how is the wind speed measured? To your relief, scientists have invented an instrument known as Anemometer, to measure the wind speed and pressure. The term comes from the Greek word ‘anemos’, meaning wind and is used to describe any wind measuring instrument.

Depending on the type of application anemometers can … Read more

How the Handheld Anemometer came to be

Although the invention of the original cup anemometer was noted in history as being down to Leon Battista Alberti, there are many that will argue that the idea came many years before. Through archaeological studies it has been shown that in fact the original idea comes from way back when the Mayans lived on earth. Whoever developed the anemometer originally may remain a mystery forever; however its place in both history and the modern world has not wavered.

The original cup anemometer created by John Thomas Romney Robinson was made from a series of four cups … Read more
