True to its barometrical functions, my throat was predicting a storm.
In this estimate, the elevation of the junction is assumed as given by our barometrical observations in 1842.
Profited of being obliged to remain in camp, to take hourly barometrical observations from sunrise to midnight.
Barometrical observations were made almost hourly during the day.
At this I opened my eyes inadvertently—nobody could help it—and saw the barometrical change in poppa's countenance.
Here Elder Pratt took a barometrical observation and found the height to be 7,315 feet above the level of the sea.
Assuming that the barometrical height of its source is 1,582 feet, it has a mean descent of over six inches per mile.
When the barometrical observations were worked out we found we had now descended 262 feet from our starting-point.
A series of barometrical observations was kept going whether we were on the move or not.
Its height, according to barometrical measurement, is seven thousand two hundred feet.
