Wind speed on a planet is determined based on astronomical observations of the movement of clouds in the upper atmosphere.

Wind speed on a planet is determined based on astronomical observations of the movement of clouds in the upper atmosphere. Will the wind speed be higher or lower at the planet’s surface?

Wind speed changes with altitude. It is less near the surface due to the friction of the air layers against the surface and the internal friction of the gas layers.
