- n. A recording barometer.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A self-registering instrument for recording variations in the pressure of the atmosphere. It is made by attaching to the lever of a counterpoised barometer an arm with a pencil in contact with a sheet of paper, and moved uniformly by clockwork. The result is a continuous trace, whose changes of form correspond to the variations of pressure. In another form a ray of light is made to traverse the upper part of the barometer-tube and fall on a moving ribbon of sensitized paper, the rising and falling of the mercury in the barometer causing the beam of light to be increased or diminished in width, thus showing the changes in the barometer by the continuous photographic record of the paper. In still another form the movement of the mercury-column is used to close an electric circuit and thus report its movements. Also called
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. (Meteor.) An instrument for recording automatically the variations of atmospheric pressure.
- n. a recording barometer; automatically records on paper the variations in atmospheric pressure

“I remember glancing at the barograph as I set down the telephone.”
“In the kitchen were hung our two mercury barometers, four aneroids, barograph, thermograph, and one thermometer.”
“The meteorological station at Framheim was arranged in this way: the barometers, barograph, and one thermograph hung inside the house; they were placed in the kitchen, behind the door of the living-room, which usually stood open, and thus protected them from the radiant heat of the range.”
“The resulting registrations are then as follows: from Framheim, one set of barograms and two sets of thermograms, of which one gives the temperature of the air and the other the temperature inside the house, where the barometers and barograph were placed; from the Fram we have barograms for the whole period from her leaving Christiania, in 1910, to her arrival at Buenos Aires for the third time, in 1912.”
“A meteorological screen, containing thermometers and a barograph, had been erected on a post frozen into the ice, and observations were taken every four hours.”
“The meteorologist had got his recording station, containing anemometer, barograph, and thermograph, rigged over the stern.”
“A meteorological screen or box was erected on a platform over the stern, right away from the living quarters, and in it were placed the maximum and minimum thermometers, the recording barograph, and thermograph — an instrument which writes every variation of the temperature and pressure on a sheet of paper on a revolving drum — and the standard thermometer, a very carefully manufactured thermometer, with all its errors determined and tabulated.”
“The exception would be if the storm overran an island having a barograph.”
“You have to be a real nerd like me to want to have a barograph in your house, but I like things made of brass and glass and mahogany.”
