A one-person, one-instrument method for precision barometric altimetry

published at : Technical & software bulletin 1994

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper describes an adaptation of the leap-frog method of barometric altimetry which enables altimetric surveys to be undertaken by a single operator using a single barometer with no requirement for base stations. This paper is accompanied by a Microsoft Excel tremplate spreadsheet, BAROSURV.XLT, which converts temperature and pressure readings to relative elevations, and graphs the results. Notes on the use of BAROSURV.XLT are included in the ASCII text file BAROSURV.NOT.
