chrono-, chron-

(Greek: time, times; sequence of times)

isochronal
1. Of a line: connecting points at which a particular event occurs or occurred at the same time; of a diagram, depicting such lines.
2. Equal in duration or marked by or occurring at equal time intervals.
isochronal, isochronous
1. Acting in uniform time, or taking place at regular intervals.
2. Equal in time; contemporary; occurring during the same time.
isochrone
A line on a chart connecting all points having the same time of occurrence of particular phenomena or of a particular value of a quantity.
isochronia
1. The state of having the same chronaxie.
2. Agreement, with respect to time, rate, or frequency, between processes.
3. The correspondence of events with respect to time, rate, or frequency.
isochronic, isochronism
1. Not varying in time; occurring at the same time or at a regular time.
2. Having the characteristics of a uniform rate of operation or periodicity; for example, as a pendulum or watch balance.
isochronon
A clock designed to keep very accurate time.
isochronous, isochronism, isochrony
1. Taking place in or occupying equal times; equal in metrical length; equal in duration, or in intervals of occurrence, as the vibrations of a pendulum; characterized by or relating to vibrations or motions of equal duration; vibrating uniformly, as a pendulum.
2. Taking place (vibrating, etc.) in the same time, or at the same intervals of time, as something else; equal in duration (vibration-period, etc.) to or with something.
metachronism
1. An error in chronology consisting in placing an event later than its real date.
2. In biology, the co-ordination of the movement of parts; especially, cilia, into a progressive wave.
metachronous
1. Not synchronous; multiple separate occurrences, such as multiple primary cancers developing at intervals.
2. Occurring at different times.
monochronic
Relating to a single period of time.
monochronous
Consisting of one time or mora.
myochronoscope
An instrument for timing a muscular impulse, i.e., the interval between the application of the stimulus and the muscular movement in response.
nucleocosmochronology
A technique that attempts to estimate the age of astronomical objects by measuring the relative abundances of isotopes (any of two or more atoms of an element having the same number of protons, but a different number of neutrons in its nucleus).
oligochronometer
An instrument for measuring very short time intervals.
orthochronology
A geochronology that is based on a standard biostratigraphical succession of significant faunas or floras, or on irreversible evolutionary processes.
