(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.

Identification of the velocity field around the doctor's body is an important study in itself and requires use of sophisticated measuring technique, i.e., laser Doppler anemometry (LDA), particle image velocimetry (PIV), etc.
Proposal: Erection of 70m high anemometry mast (temporary for three years).
The benefit of the INL MIR technique is that it permits optical techniques, such as particle image velocimetry (PIV) and laser Doppler anemometry (LDA), to measure flow characteristics in flow fields and near surfaces, in passages and around objects having complicated geometries without introducing an intrusive probe into the flow field and without distortion of optical paths.
