More Information (under review)
The Munro cup anemometer and vane have been the basic instrumental method for measuring wind in the UK for many years. Traditionally it has been connected to an anemograph and/or dial, but with the advent of automatic systems it has been attached various processing devices, e.g. the DALE logger. The cup has a large inertia and therefore has a relatively slow response time, but of more concern is the high start-up speed, which in the case of the Mk4 is about 6 knots. In 1998 a project began for the replacement of Munros by a lightweight anemometer with better response characteristics.
