Is it altitude or air pressure (density)?

There is a semi-joke about good enough pendulum clocks turning into 
garvitometers.  How accurately can you measure the frequency of a cavity?  
Can a good setup be used as a barometer?

How does humidity compare with air pressure?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
