What instrument measures wind pressure?
Not sure about pressure but wind speed is measured by an ANENOMETER. You may be able to meaure its pressure by some form of dynamometer (basically a spring-balance) attached to a target-plate of known area. There may also be calculations using speed and barometric pressure.

An anemometer or windmeter is the device that measures wind speed.They are usually divided into those that measure the wind's speedand it's pressure. The first known anemomete…r was described in 1450by Leon Battista Alberti. anemometer.
The instrument to measure wind resistance is called an anemometer or wind-meter. It is a common instrument used in weather stations.
An anemometer measures wind speed. On the other hand, a wind vein is used to determine the direction of the wind.
An Anemometer . Wind speed is an important factor in a variety of fields,including maritime operations, civil engineering and weatherforecasting. The device used to measure …wind speed is called ananemometer. Quantitative measurements of wind speed were first madewith anemometers as early as the 15th century. Modern weatherservices use adaptations of the anemometer that incorporate moderntechnologies like lasers or ultrasound sensors to increasemeasurement precision and repeatability. Two types of anemometersare used; namely cup anemometers and hot wire anemometers. . Though basic in construction, the cup anemometer introduced in 1846is considered an industry standard in measuring wind speed. Modernvariants of this technology use three cups that spin around avertical axis. The torque generated by the movement of wind isproportional to the wind speed. Cup anemometers must be calibratedbecause the torque also depends on the geometry of the cups usedand the length of the arms they are attached to. Cup anemometersare relatively inexpensive and simple to construct, making them apopular project for science fairs.. Hot wire anemometers exploit the electrical properties of metals toindirectly measure wind speed. The electrical conductivity of ametal wire is proportional to the temperature of the metal. A hotwire anemometer is essentially a fine metal wire that is heatedabove ambient temperatures. When wind blows, the wire is cooled,measurably reducing its conductivity. The degree to which theconductivity is reduced is proportional to the velocity of thewind. Hot wire anemometers are small and require electricalmeasurement equipment to use effectively.. The wind direction is measured with wind vanes or wind socks. The wind speed is measured with an anemometer. The tool that you use to measure wind speed is called an Anemometer.
A 'vane' measures wind direction.
The anemometer is used to measure the wind. The word anemometer comes from the Greek word "anemos" which means wind.
Meteorologist observe the hurricane in a close distance with it. Maybe in the future there will be a tool which can measure the speed of the hurricane. :)
You can measure wind force with force transducer.
The wind speed can be measured with an anemometer.
The wind direction is measured with wind vanes or wind socks. The wind speed is measured with an anemometer.
every instrument on earth except an anemometer I WANT MY MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They use An anemometer. It is a device for measuring wind speed, and is a common weather station instrument. The term is derived from the Greek word anemos, meaning wind, an…d is used to describe any airspeed measurement instrument used in meteorology or aerodynamics. Anemometers can be divided into two classes: those that measure the wind's speed, and those that measure the wind's pressure; but as there is a close connection between the pressure and the speed, an anemometer designed for one will give information about both.There are two types of anemometers; namely cup and windmill anemometers
An anemometer is used to measure wind speed and a barometer is used to measure air pressure.
