Barometers and barographs are fascinating and make wonderful gifts for those interested in meteorology and those who are attracted to the intricacy and craftsmanship of the piece itself.
A barometer is an instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure and has, for centuries, been used as a device for predicting short term weather changes. A drop in atmospheric pressure predicts bad or stormy weather.
A barograph is a barometer with a recording attachment – a barogram (or chart) – that records changes in atmospheric pressure over time.
