chronistor (s) (noun), chronistors (pl)
A miniature elapsed-time indicator that uses electroplating principles to measure the operating time of equipment: The chronistor that Mr. Straight had in his firm could add up the operating time of his machines up to several thousand hours!
chronobiology (s) (noun), chronobiologies (pl)
The scientific study of the effect of time on living systems: Chronobiology is that aspect of biology that is concerned with the timing of biological events, especially repetitive or cyclic phenomena in individual organisms.

Chronobiology can also pertain to the biological rhythm of a woman's menstruation that repeats itself almost every 4 weeks.

chronocline (s) (noun), chronoclines (pl)
In paleontology, a time series of fossils showing small changes in successive representatives of a taxon: A chronocline is a gradual change in a character or group of characters, as a species, over an extended period of geological time.

A chronocline can also be explained as a gradient of morphologic changes in a taxonomic group through time as found in a series of fossil-bearing strata.

chronocyclegraph (s) (noun), chronocyclegraphs (pl)
A cyclographic time-and-motion study in which the light level varies to permit computation of the speed and direction of body motions: A chronocyclegraph uses little electric lamps that are fastened to the operator's hands, and when the light from the little lamps are turned off, little dots are produced on the film.
chronogenesis (s) (noun), chronogeneses (pl)
The historical development of a group of organisms: Chronogenesis pertains to the time sequence of occurrences of organisms in stratified rock.
chronognosis (s) (noun), chronognoses (pl)
The subjective appreciation of the passage of time: Chronognosis is the perception of time passing by.

Mary was quite aware of the situation of chronognosis, or that time was passing by while in the waiting room at the doctor's office.

Time structured by religious authority and the universe’s natural rhythms has been replaced by the secular authority of mechanical time keepers.
chronogram (s) (noun), chronograms (pl)
1. An inscription, sentence, or phrase in which certain numeral letters, usually made especially conspicuous to express a particular date or epoch on being added together; as in: Man of sCience and huManity, Bertrand RusselL’s eXample gIves life eXtra meaning = MCMLXIX or 1969, the year of Bertrand Russell’s death.
2. In horology, the record produced by an instrument that records time intervals; A chronogram is the document showing the duration of an event.
chronograph (s) (noun), chronographs (pl)
1. An instrument for recording time with extreme exactness: A chronograph is a watch or clock to which various mechanical devices are attached for the same purpose. It is used in astronomical and other observations, in the timing of races, etc.
2. A highly precise instrument that measures, indicates, and records the elapsed time of an event, also those of a brief duration: Jim had a stopwatch, or chronograph, for the precise timing of the athletes competing in the race.
3. A precise time-keeper used for navigational and astronomical purposes: The chronograph was invented by Louis Moinet in 1816 to use in tracking astronomical objects in the sky.

Aircraft piloting, diving, car racing, and submarine movements also use chronographs in the present day.

chronographer (s) (noun), chronographers (pl)
An obsolete term for someone who writes a record concerning time or the events of time; a chronicler; a chromologer: One famous chronographer was Theophanes from Greece.
chronography (s) (noun), chronographies (pl)
1.A record or description of past occurrences: The chronography that Virginia found among her mother's things included all the places, dates, and events on the family's journey to Europe.
2. The measurement with an instrument for recording time with extreme exactness: Mr. Fast used a watch or stopwatch with various mechanical devices in order to make accurate chronographies of his student's progress with running.

A chronography is also important in astronomical observations.

chronoisothermal (adjective), more chronoisothermal, most chronoisothermal
Relating to a diagram exhibiting the course of the mean monthly temperature of a place for each hour of the day: A chronoisothermal chart indicates the relationship between time and temperature.
chronokinetics (s) (noun) (no pl)
A theory or fantasy that suggests that people can gain abilities by having a certain genetic marker with which they can develop abilities to form travel through time, control the speed of a subject's movement, slow down foes, and increase one's speed: A person with the power of chronokinetics could even accelerate or reverse the aging process on any subject he or she desires.

Chronokinetics may also include the manipulation of space as well in accordance with the time-space continuum, allowing teleportation.

The ability of chronokinesis is not likely to be the actual manipulation of time and space, but rather the chronokinetics manipulation of himself or herself in accordance with it.

This is derived from the fact that people with the power of chronokinetics are still held down by gravity when time is "frozen", are still able to breathe, the weight of other objects still apply, etc., all of which would be a focal point of why people believe in chronokinetics develop health concerns, which also supports the theory about the teleportation aspects of this ability.

"Teleportation" is a hypothetical method (in science fiction) of transportation in which matter or information is dematerialized, usually instantaneously at one point and recreated at another point with psychokinesis which is the supposed ability to use mental powers to make objects move or to otherwise affect them.
