Jose Maria Algue
José María Algué, SJ (29 December 1856 – 27 May 1930), was a Spanish Roman Catholic priest and meteorologist in the observatory of Manila. He invented the barocyclonometer, the nephoscope, and a kind of microseismograph. The barocyclonometer was officially adopted by the US Navy and warships of the North Atlantic Squadron were equipped with them around 1914. Father Algué was an honorary member of the Royal Society of London and the Pontificia Accademia Romana.
