1Cup anemometers unless otherwise specified. The number of cups is specified only for those items where the number is clear. Some of the images of anemometers are either too small or give a horizontal view of the anemometer so that the number of cups cannot be determined.
2Same design was used from 1969 through 1977.
3Decorative wind vanes are commonly known as weather vanes; rooster wind vanes are commonly known as weathercocks.
4Sequencers are wind-driven anemometer-like devices used, in lieu of other means, for mechanical switching among the various measurements recorded by instrument packages. Sequencers are found on older-style weather balloon instrument packages.
5Although not a typical wind vane, the wind-signal tower was used as a tool to measure the power of the wind and a signal to inform fishermen when they could sail into or out of the port.

7The two propeller-anemometer-like devices on these items are two wind-driven generators on Nomad ocean buoys.
8Wind-speed only on these items, because there is no wind vane for determining wind direction.
9Wind-direction only on these items, because there are no cups or propeller for determining wind speed with an anemoscope.
10The Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE), led by Douglas Mawson, was based at Cape Denison in Commonwealth Bay. Scientific measurements and exploration of the area by coastal and inland sledging journeys were carried out in 1912 and 1913. Commonwealth Bay is possibly the windiest coastal location on Earth, because of its physical morphology: the long steep slope that leads down from the high Antarctic plateau to the Bay at sea level is favourable for the formation of violent katabatic (downslope) winds that can create blizzards if there is fresh snow available to lift into the air. One main goal of the expedition was to make scientific measurements in various disciplines. A program of meteorological and magnetic measurements was carried out at Cape Denison. Cecil Madigan was the expedition meteorologist.
11The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is a 1 to 5 rating based on a hurricane's sustained wind speed. Category 3 and higher hurricanes are considered major hurricanes because of their potential for significant loss of life and property damage. Category 1 and 2 storms, while weaker, can still be dangerous. For more detail see the Saffir-Simpson wind scale.
