Record 2 2010-04-27

English

Subject field(s)
  • Weather Stations and Meteorological Instruments and Equipment
  • Atmospheric, Climatic and Meteorological Phenomena
DEF

An instrument for recording (measuring the changes in) relative humidity using a length of human hair strand(s).

CONT

Hair Hygrograph. Human hair is one of the most reliable and time-proven sensor for humidity. The ends of the hair bundle are held in supports. Approximately at the centre, the hair are kept in tension by a hook. The hair shrink with decreasing humidity and elongate with increasing humidity.

CONT

The hair hygrograph ... Human hair is sensitive to changes in humidity. The changes in the hair's length (proportional to changes in humidity) is transferred to a pen which records the fluctuating relative humidity on a chart. This type of hygrograph is not very precise, but is able to operate in freezing conditions.

  • Phénomènes météorologiques, climatiques et atmosphériques
DEF

Hygromètre enregistreur dont le principe repose sur la mesure d'un ou de plusieurs cheveux, qui s'allonge en fonction de l'humidité relative de l'air.

Subject field(s)
  • Statistical Graphs and Diagrams
  • Weather Stations and Meteorological Instruments and Equipment
DEF

Record made by a hygrograph.

OBS

hygrograph: A type of hygrometer in which changes in the relative humidity of the air cause a pen to rise or fall, tracing a line on a chart that is fixed to a rotating drum. The resulting record is known as a hygrogram.

DEF

Instrument résultant de la combinaison d'un thermographe et d'un hygrographe et fournissant sur le même diagramme un enregistrement chronologique simultané de la température et de l'état hygrométrique.

CONT

Le thermo-hygrographe mesure et inscrit conjointement, pour 24h ou une semaine, l'évolution des températures et des taux d'humidité. La mesure vise une information : température, poids, longueur, intensité. Elle suppose intimement une visibilité : position d'une aiguille, indication chiffrée, trace et courbe sur un papier, un écran.
