Hi guys, I'm looking to incorporate an anemometer to be read off an arduino ATmega328.

Is it possible to read the number of pulses from an anemometer such as this?:

what sort of function would I need to measure these pulses?

Check the attachinterrupt() function. That is the easiest way to count pulses, you can check the # pulses every second and derive the windspeed
