atmidometer definition

  • noun:
    • An instrument for measuring the evaporation from liquid, ice, or snowfall.
    • a musical instrument for calculating the evaporation from liquid, ice, or snowfall.
    • An instrument invented by Babington for measuring the evaporation from water, ice, or snow. E. H. Knight. See atmometer.
    • Atmidometers might classed as: Micrometric, such as Lamont's, when the steady autumn for the surface of liquid in a shallow pan is measured because of the turning of a micrometer-screw, or is counteracted bythe inflow of additional water pressed from a reservoir by means of a micrometer-screw.
    • Balance atmidorneters, where losing water is shown by loss in body weight.
    • The Piche evaporometer, when the evaporating surface is a little disk of permeable paper shutting the reduced end of a vertical tube conveying liquid. The quantity of evaporation is shown by measuring the descent regarding the feed-water when you look at the pipe. See slashed on page 88.
    • The Stelling evaporometer, when the evaporating-pan floats at first glance of a river or pond and lack of water is calculated from hour to time by measuring either body weight or amount.
    • The lysimeter, where the evaporation from the surface of developing flowers is assessed by setting up the plant in a large vessel resting on cooking pan of a balance.
    • a guitar for calculating the evaporation from water, ice, or snowfall.
    • a musical instrument for measuring the evaporation from water, ice, or snow.
    • a musical instrument invented by Babington for measuring the evaporation from water, ice, or snow. E. H. Knight. See atmometer.
    • Atmidometers can be classified as: Micrometric, such Lamont's, when the gradual autumn regarding the area of liquid in a shallow cooking pan is calculated by the turning of a micrometer-screw, or is counteracted bythe inflow of additional liquid pushed from a reservoir by means of a micrometer-screw.
    • Balance atmidorneters, where losing liquid is shown by losing fat.
    • The Piche evaporometer, when the evaporating area is a little disk of permeable report shutting the lower end of a vertical tube conveying water. The total amount of evaporation is shown by measuring the descent of feed-water within the pipe. See cut on page 88.
    • The Stelling evaporometer, where evaporating-pan floats on the surface of a river or lake additionally the reduced liquid is measured from hour to time by measuring either body weight or volume.
    • The lysimeter, where evaporation through the area of growing flowers is assessed by establishing the plant in a big vessel resting in the cooking pan of a balance.
