barograph

A recording barometer.

Barographs may be classified, on the basis of their construction, into the following types: 1) aneroid barograph (including microbarograph); 2) float barograph; 3) photographic barograph; and 4) weight barograph. The aneroid barograph is the one most commonly used in weather stations.
