Above Sea Level Barometer Reading Correction Formula

The Standard sea-level pressure, by definition, equals 760 mm (29.92 inches) of mercury, 14.70 pounds per square inch, 1,013.25 × 103 dynes per square centimeter, 1,013.25 millibars, one standard atmosphere, or 101.325 kilopascals. Given here is the above sea level barometer reading correction formula which will guide you suitably to estimate the correction for adjustment and new reading on barometer in a simple way by just substituting the inputs.

Formula:

R = - 29.92126 x (1 - (1 / 10(0.0081350 x H) / (T + (0.00178308 x H))))
S = O + R


Where,

R = Adjustment Barometer Correction
S = New Reading Barometer Correction
O = Observed Barometer Reading
H = Above Sea Level
T = Temperature (509.67)
