photographic barograph

A mercury barometer arranged so that the position of the upper or lower meniscus may be measured photographically.

In one design the image of the meniscus is formed on a rotating drum covered with sensitized paper so that a continuous record is obtained of pressure as a function of time.
See barograph.
