In fact, the temperature obtained by the employment of ice precluded a thermometric register much below the freezing point.
In any case it is necessary to define a thermometric unit of class .
No series of thermometric observations worthy of confidence extend further back, in the United States, than seventy-eight years.
De Fonvielle has made with it a new determination of the sun's thermometric power.
In the United States with an annual thermometric range of more than 90 deg.
It makes up some thirty-four quarto pages of Smyth's edition of Franklin's works, exclusive of the thermometric notes.
The hour of the day appears to be indifferent, since there exists no thermometric diurnal variation in the strata of the surface.
In reply, the Secretary says that he is not aware that any thermometric observations have been made in the cavern.
The accompanying temperature diagram (Fig. 23) shows the thermometric record of an unusually protracted and grave case.
In estimating them the attention of the profession is now mainly directed to thermometric and hygrometric changes and conditions.
thermometer ther·mom·e·ter (thər-mŏm'ĭ-tər)
An instrument for measuring temperature.
An instrument used to measure temperature. There are many types of thermometers; the most common consist of a closed, graduated glass tube in which a liquid expands or contracts as the temperature increases or decreases. Other types of thermometers work by detecting changes in the volume or pressure of an enclosed gas or by registering thermoelectric changes in a conductor (such as a thermistor or thermocouple).
