Description: The lookout tower offers a ready-made platform from which the speed of true unobstructed wind can be measured, then reduced to equivalent of 20-foot wind. Tower-mounted instruments must meet the requirements of a lightning conductor system, but should also be easily installed and removed for storage and maintenance. Lightweight aluminum mountings for catwalk or flat-roofed installations are described.
Keywords: wind velocity measurement, lightning protection, wind speed conversion, wind gages, anemometers, wind instrument exposure
