Dictionary Suite
aerostatics (used with a sing. verb) the branch of aeromechanics that deals with gases in equilibrium and with the equilibrium of airborne bodies or aircraft under changing atmospheric conditions.
ambient a type of instrumental music characterized by patterns of sound rather than melodic form or rhythmic structure, and which can be explicitly listened to or serve as background or atmospheric sound. [1/3 definitions]
aneroid barometer a barometer that uses a thin metal disk covering a partial vacuum, such that a change in atmospheric pressure results in a corresponding change in the shape of the disk and moves the indicator needle.
atmospherics (used with a sing. verb) static in radio reception caused by atmospheric electrical activity. [1/2 definitions]
barogram a visual record of atmospheric pressure over time, produced by a barograph.
barograph a barometer that automatically records the atmospheric pressure.
barometer a meteorological instrument that measures atmospheric pressure, esp. used to predict weather changes. [1/2 definitions]
barometric pressure the pressure of the earth's atmosphere, as measured by a barometer; atmospheric pressure.
baroscope an instrument that indicates changes in atmospheric pressure.
boiling point the temperature at which the vapor pressure of a liquid equals atmospheric pressure and the liquid boils. [1/2 definitions]
decompression sickness a painful and sometimes fatal condition caused by the formation of nitrogen bubbles in the blood, resulting from returning to atmospheric pressure too quickly from deep water or a compression chamber; aeroembolism; bends.
dehumidify to reduce the level of atmospheric moisture in.
depression a region with lower atmospheric pressure than nearby regions. [1/7 definitions]
element (pl.) the atmospheric conditions that constitute the weather. [1/6 definitions]
force of nature a hurricane, an earthquake, or other such powerful natural event, esp. one that is highly destructive, usu. generated by atmospheric or lithospheric conditions. [1/3 definitions]
greenhouse gas any atmospheric gas that absorbs and emits radiant energy and contributes to the greenhouse effect.
high an atmospheric condition of high pressure, often indicating fair weather. [1/14 definitions]
high-pressure of, concerning, or characterized by a pressure much higher than normal atmospheric pressure. [1/4 definitions]
hygroscopic attracting or easily absorbing atmospheric moisture.
low1 an atmospheric condition of low pressure, often indicating storms or violent weather patterns. [1/16 definitions]
meteorograph an instrument that measures and records several atmospheric or weather conditions at the same time.
