The Barometer Handbook (by David Burch)
This Barometer Handbook not only gives the history of barometers, but also explains how to evaluate a barometer and how to carry out a simple calibration using convenient online resources (see www.starpath.com/barometers). How to use accurate pressure in marine navigation is also explained with practical examples. Also included are monthly mean sea level pressures worldwide, including the standard deviations of each.
