centigrade thermometer

Celsius thermometer.
See: Celsius, Anders

clinical thermometer

A thermometer for measuring the body temperature. See: clinical thermometry

differential thermometer

A thermometer recording slight variations of temperature.

Fahrenheit thermometer

See: Fahrenheit, Daniel Gabriel

gas thermometer

A thermometer filled with gas, such as air, helium, or oxygen.

mercury thermometer

A thermometer containing mercury for measurement of temperature. Mercury thermometers are seldom employed because they are an important source of heavy metal pollution of rivers, streams, and aquatic life.

recording thermometer

A device with a suitable sensor that continuously monitors and records temperature.

rectal thermometer

A thermometer with a round bulb that is inserted into the rectum for determining body temperature.

self-registering thermometer

A thermometer recording variations of temperature.

spirit thermometer

A thermometer filled with alcohol for registering low temperatures.

surface thermometer

A thermometer for indicating the temperature of the body's surface. Used, for example, in infant warmers.
