The storm glass or chemical weather glass is an instrument proposed as a method for predicting weather. It consists of a special liquid placed inside a sealed transparent glass. The state of crystallization within the liquid was believed to be related to the weather. The inventor is unknown but the device became popular in the 1860s after being promoted by Admiral Robert FitzRoy who claimed that if fixed, undisturbed, in free air, not exposed to radiation, fire, or sun, but in the ordinary light of a well-ventilated room or outer air, the chemical mixture in a so-called storm-glass varies in character with the direction of the wind, not its force, specially (though it may so vary in appearance only) from another cause, electrical tension. …A version of the device was available in the 18th century in France and the inventor is unknown.[5] In 1859, violent storms struck the British Isles. In response, the British Crown distributed storm glasses, then known as “FitzRoy’s storm barometers,” to many small fishing communities around the British Isles for consultation by ships in port before setting sail. ( The compositions of the liquid in a storm glass varies but usually contains “camphor, nitrate of potassium and sal-ammoniac, dissolved by alcohol, with water and some air.” These devices are now known to have little value in weather prediction but continue to be a curiosity.[] – The surface of the water in the bottle lies at a level above the opening of the spout into the bottle. The principle is that the air left in the bottle above the water exerts the pressure of the air at the time the bottle was filled, while the liquid in the spout is exposed to the changing atmospheric pressure. –
