Description

The measurement of temperature is one of the most common and importnt physical measurements both in research and in industry, and this edition of "Temperature" is an essential guide to all scientists and engineers who spend an appreciable part of their professional lives with furnaces or cryostats. The new edition, written by an authority on the subject, is a comprehensive account of thermometry between 0.5 and 3000K. Fully revised to take account of and to explain the new International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90), this volume reflects the many advances which have taken place since the first edition in 1983. In-depth coverage is given to all common methods of thermometry.
