Weather Instruments
Anemometer
• This is used to measure wind speed.
Thermometer
• This is used to
measure
temperature.
• Temperature is
the kinetic
energy of the
atoms.
Psychrometer
• This gives a dry bulb and a wet bulb
temperature that are then used to determine
relative humidity and dewpoint
Psychrometer for Dewpoint
Psychrometer for Relative Humidity
Barometer
• This measures air pressure.
