plethysmometry (s), plethysmometries (pl) (nouns)
Measurement of the fullness of hollow organs or vessels; such as, with the pulse.
pluviometer (s) (noun), pluviometers (pl)
An instrument that measures rainfall which is also known as a rain gauge: The Hillman family in California used to have a pluviometer attached to a post in their backyard which measured the amount of precipitation whenever there was any.
pluviometrical (adjective), more pluviometrical, most pluviometrical
Pertaining to a tool that determines the amount of rainfall at any given time: Mr. Lange showed his biology students his pluviometrical device that still contained the amount of precipitation from the day before.
pluviometrically (adverb), more pluviometrically, most pluviometrically
Referring to a method that can determine the amount of water that has fallen during a specific rainfall: The aqueous vapor gauge pluviometrically measured the quantity of moisture that fell during the last 24 hours so Jane could enter the data into her statistics for her class at school.
pluviometry (s) (noun) (usually no plural form)
The amount of downpour that has fallen on any particular day or night: Pluviometry is a part of meteorology that focuses on the different forms of water coming from the sky which indicates its formation and distribution.
