lag error

An error in a pressure altimeter when height changes are very rapid. The altimeter lags behind the actual height—the altimeter over-reads in a rapid descent and underreads in a very rapid climb. The higher the rate of change, the higher the error. The error is not as prominent in rapid climb.
