Monday 20 February 2012: The recording of bad weather

The effect of bad weather is recorded on the clinometer and the barograph. The first instrument records the angle of rolling, the second the change of atmospheric pressure. A proud 3rd officer Octhav R. showing the barograph and wall mounted the clinometer.

Yesterday the vessel was rolling 25 degrees over starboard and 3o degrees over portside. The difference is caused by the wind effect coming in from starboard.

The lowest airpressure 992 hPa and the highest 24 hours later 1024 hPa. The reason for windforce 8 Bf.

Having said that, my Nikon D-50 did not survived the seawater shower.
