Abstract in another language

For measurements of the pressure of the atmosphere, the different techniques in use include liquid barometers, aneroid barometers, and electronic barometers. The history and theory of all these methods is described. Electronic sensors, such as piezoresistive pressure sensors, capacitive pressure sensors, and resonant pressure sensors have recently become the most used devices. Some types are also applicable for turbulence measurements. Besides technical data, the necessary maintenance associated with different methods, as well as the methods of quality control and calibration, are presented.
