Barometer

An instrument for measuring atmospheric pressure.

Barometer

A barometer is a scientific instrument used in meteorology to measure atmospheric pressure. Pressure tendency can forecast short term changes in the weather. Numerous measurements of air pressure are used within surface weather analysis to help find surface troughs, high pressure systems and frontal boundaries. == History == Although Evangelista T...

Barometer

A barometer is a device for measuring atmospheric pressure and thus determining changes in the weather, the height of mountains, and other phenomena. The basic principle behind the barometer is the discovery in 1643 by Torricelli, that atmospheric pressure might be counterpoised by a column of mercury standing as high in proportion to the thirty-fo...
