The Beaufort Scale is an empirical measure for describing wind speed based mainly on observed sea conditions. The Beaufort Scale was published in 1805.
It has 13 steps and gives the wind speed in knots and miles per hour. The scale was originally published for use at sea and was later adapted for use on land.
