Anemometer

Anemometro

Of the two types of anemometer drawn by Leonardo, this is a very straightforward design. It is made up of a wooden graduated framework with a vane which is turned by the wind so as to show its direction. This instrument was designed to study weather conditions, with a view to improving safety in human flight.
