(an'ĕ-mom'ĕ-ter),
An instrument for measuring the velocity of air flow.
[G. anemos, wind, + metron, measure]

anemometer

(a″nĕ-mom′ĕ-tĕr) [Gr. anemos, wind + -meter]
In pulmonary function studies, a device for measuring the rate of air flow through a tube. The rate at which air flows into or out of the lung may be measured by using a calibrated anemometer.

John Zimmerman at Sporty's told me smartphone anemometers are niche products, but are gaining traction as they get better.
On the other hand, vane-type, hot-wire-type, and hood-type anemometers and flowmeters are light and easy to carry and thus are widely used in the field.

Compared to the plasma anemometers introduced in [1, 9,17], our method is a low cost, practical, and easy to realize one.
For instance, in two experimental studies [25] [26] involving field measurements in the ASL using arrays of ultrasonic anemometers, the ratio of the advection speed to the mean speed [W.sub.a] / [??] was reported to lie between 1 and 1.2.
The slope of expression (6), d[A.sub.r]/d[R.sub.rc], seems to be directly related to the aerodynamic nondimensional coefficient of the cups, as very small differences in this coefficient were observed among the 42 calibrations performed on the 2 anemometers tested.
In most cases, they find that the balancer is attempting to determine the air quantities and has a hot wire anemometer of some sort.
Commercial anemometers which are used for weather forecast have a tolerance of +-0.3m/s to 0.5 m/s; these may be reasonably accurate anemometers for weather forecast but such tolerance is not acceptable for wind turbine installation.
Wind speed can be measured with an instrument called an anemometer.
