The advantage of this sensor over a standard pressure gauge is additional sensors for recording elevation and temperature. Pressure, temperature, and altitude may be recorded via software: that data may be subsequently displayed and analysed easily for events, as analysis methodology evolves. 

Examples of practical work where use of the sensor will enhance learning and understanding include work to study:  

  • The changes in atmospheric pressure with altitude
  • As part of a weather station - to record changes in local weather conditions with time
  • Monitoring an active storm front's development
  • As an altitude recorder: Linked to GPS, to give profile data for a journey (such as a hike)
  • In physical chemistry and physics, to estimate the Universal Gas Constant, R, from a pressure altitude distribution
  • In the physical sciences to understand pressure, the effects of gravity, and how fluids behave in a gravitational field
