Researchers in Singapore and the UK have developed a new blood pressure monitoring device that they claim is easier to use, more comfortable to wear, and more accurate than traditional methods. Scientists at the University of Leicester and HealthSTATS International, a medical devices company located in the Southeast Asian country, developed the measurement device, which has been dubbed the CASPal and is similar to a wristwatch. The CASPal uses a sensor to record central aortic systolic...

Surface Weather Map Features for July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 10:00:03

The morning weather map for July 5, shows us the current surface pressure readings. Surface Pressure is very important from a meteorological stand point. We use this to help us identify where our surface pressure centers are just like you see above. Our Low pressure area is over Northeast Colorado and also the High pressure over the Ontario area. Surface pressure is taken hourly from the stations and they are also mostly done on a 24hr basis, however some places will only submit their...

A barometer is an instrument that measures atmospheric pressure. The barometer measures pressure exerted by the atmosphere using water, air, or mercury. Through measuring the pressure one can forecast short term weather changes. Evangelista Torricelli is credited with the invention of the barometer in 1643. However, Gasparo Berti unintentionally built a water barometer around the same time. Rene Descartes was also noted as describing an experiment to determine air pressure but there is no...

A snow gauge is an instrument used in meteorology to gather and measure the amount of solid precipitation (as opposed to liquid precipitation that is measured by a rain gauge) over a period of time. A snow gauge has two parts: the copper catchment container and the funnel shaped gauge itself. The actual gauge is mounted on a pipe that is about 4 ft. 11 in. high. The gauge itself is about 20.25 inches long. Snowfall is measured by how much falls into the gauge. When snow has fallen, the...
