Examples

  • Doing it at an easy gradient and accustoming oneself to the lessened barometric pressure by slow degrees, there are no such dreadful symptoms.

    The Horror of the Heights

  • An approaching low pressure system in the atmosphere would make the “glass fall,” i.e, the barometric pressure gauge a column of mercury in a thin glass tube dip to a low level, appropriately marked on the barometer’s face as “stormy weather.”

    John Paul Jones
