Chaney Instrument Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer
Place one of these eye-catching Galileo units on your desk or bookshelf. It will surely be noticed. This Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer from Chaney Instrument blends old and new technology to provide your desktop weather report. The entire unit is mounted on a wood base.
How does it work? A Galileo thermometer is filled with a clear liquid that suspends multiple colored weighted glass bubbles. As the liquid within the bubbles changes temperature, their density also changes, allowing the weights to rise or fall and thus creating a gauge.
The glass water barometer responds to changes in the air temperature. Fair weather is indicated by a low fluid level in the glass spout while a higher fluid level in the glass spout means inclement weather is in your future. This decorative barometer features a lovely etching of our Earth's continents.
