Pressure, whether in the air or in the ocean, is expressed by scientists as units of “atmosphere.” One atmosphere is defined as the pressure caused by the weight of all the overlying air at sea level—or 14.7 pounds per square inch (psi).
Atmospheric pressure is often called barometric pressure because it can be measured by the height of the mercury column in a barometer.

Barometric pressure is the pressure exerted by the weight of the column of air above a given point, expressed in kilopascals.
Generally speaking, when the barometric pressure is high, the air is sinking, usually resulting in fair weather.
When the barometric pressure is low or falling, air is rising, usually resulting in cloudy skies and precipitation.

 Gas Pressure
The pressure acts perpendicular (normal) to the wall; the tangential (shear) component of the force is related to the viscosity of the gas.
The pressure measured in the direction of the motion is called the total pressure and is equal to the sum of the static and dynamic pressureas described by Bernoulli's equation.
Although pressure itself is a scalar, we can define a pressure force to be equal to the pressure (force/area) times the surface area in a direction perpendicular to the surface.

 Pressure Sensor Application Notes   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The advantage of using a differential pressure sensor for this measurement instead of two gage sensors is that accuracy is always specified as a percentage of the sensor's full-scale reading.
You also can use a differential pressure sensor as a gage sensor inside a closed test chamber; you must vent the low or negative pressure port to the outside atmosphere rather than vent it inside the test chamber where the ambient pressure may be different or variable.
Pressure Sensors of many different types are used in a typical test stand.

 Fishing Theories - Effect of Barometric Pressure on Fishing Success.   (Site not responding. Last check: )
It is believed that the effect of barometric pressure is greater in shallow water than deep, probably due to the pressure of the weight of the water in deep water being so high, that the air pressure above it is not relatively significant.
Frankly, given that the pressure of water depth is such a significantly greater factor than the pressure of atmosphere, it seems likely that the weather conditions created by changes in barometric pressure, such as clouds, rain and wind, have more effect on fishing than the barometric pressure alone.
So in the opinion of the author, barometric change is a good indicator of fishing change, but it's not because of the pressure change by itself, as much as what other weather conditions are likely to occur because of the pressure change.

 Answer to "pressure (barometric)" question   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Barometric (or atmospheric) pressure is simply a measure of the amount (weight) of air above a point.
If meteorologists were to use the actual weather station pressure values in analyzing "surface" weather maps, the pressure pattern would vary with the terrain and the analysis would simply look like the mountains.
Because temperature is related to the pressure of the atmosphere, meteorologists have to assume a temperature value between the weather station and sea level.

 The Barometric Formula
Starting at some point in midair, the change in pressure associated with a small change in height can be found in terms of the weight of the air.

 It's a Breeze - How Atmospheric Pressure Effects the Weather
Based on a principle developed by Evangelista Torricelli in 1643, the Mercurial Barometer is an instrument used for measuring the change in atmospheric pressure.
Air pressure is measured by observing the height of the column of mercury in the tube.
As atmospheric pressure increases, the mercury is forced from the reservoir by the increasing air pressure and the column of mercury rises; when the atmospheric pressure decreases, the mercury flows back into the reservoir and the column of mercury is lowered.

 Directory:Barometric Pressure Power - PESWiki
The pressure difference creates a great deal of wind energy that can theorhetically be channelled through a pipe to produce electrical energy, as air naturally rushes to the lower pressure end of the pipe.
Between these pressure systems, there are the isobars – those wavy white lines that lie across the space between the two different pressure zones, indicating equal amounts of pressure, which create a pressure gradient (hill) that allows wind to flow naturally from high pressure to low pressure.
Pipe Pressure - energy technology that harnesses the pressure in pipes such as is found in municipal water pipes.

 Water level monitors automatic barometric pressure compensation
After they had gathered several years of data they were forced to view all of it with suspicion when the purchased a second barometric pressure compensation sensor for the other side of their lake and realized that the two barometric pressure monitoring sites had significant diferences as storms passed over.
To correctly interpret the data from these types of water level monitors the purchase of an external barometric pressure monitor is required at each site and the elevation for each monitoring site within a system must be determined.
Purchasing this barometric compensation sensor should not be viewed as optional since even areas with stable pressure throughout the year vary a several millibar and at sea level it is common for pressure variations of around 80 mb or 31” of water level change throughout the year.

 Pressure and Vacuum Standards
The barometric pressure data given on this page is derived from an on-line electronic pressure transducer whose accuracy is determined by regular calibration against the UK's National Standard Barometer.
Note that, when estimating a pressure value from the graphs, the uncertainty will be considerably higher than that of the measuring transducer because of limitations in screen resolution.
When using the pressure values, particularly for checking another barometer, it is important to appreciate that the differences in altitude, distance from Teddington and weather conditions may seriously limit the validity of the comparison.
