baromil

The unit of length used in graduating a mercury barometer in the centimeter-gram- second system.

If the barometer is located at 45° latitude at sea level and its temperature is 0°C, a length increment of one baromil will correspond to a pressure increment of one millibar. Corrections must be applied at other locations.
