psy·chrom·e·try

(sī-krom'ĕ-trē),
The calculation of relative humidity and water vapor pressures from wet and dry bulb temperatures and barometric pressure; whereas relative humidity is the value ordinarily employed, the vapor pressure is the measurement of physiologic significance.
Synonym(s): hygrometry
