chrono-, chron-

(Greek: time, times; sequence of times)

1. Modification of the rate of a periodic movement, e.g., the heartbeat, through some external influence.
2. Interference with the regularity of periodic movement; such as, the heart beat. 3. An orientation response due to age; used particularly with reference to the movement of leaves in plants.
The science of arranging events in the order of time by the comparative study of the annual growth rings in (ancient) timber.
A specialist in dating by examining tree rings.
1. A method of dating using annual tree-rings; tree-ring chronology.
2. The science of tree-ring analysis and its implications.
3. In archaeology, a method of dating wooden objects by analyzing the pattern of their annual rings and comparing this pattern to an established tree-ring sequence for the region.
desynchronize (verb), desynchronizes; desynchronized; desynchronizing
To do that which is the opposite of simultaneity, and not at the same instance or phase of action: To desynchronize is to prevent things from being done at the same time and speed, for example the mechanics at Tom's local automobile shop automatically take care of the various vehicles at different times.
Lack of synchrony, as in brain waves.
1. Lasting through time, or during an existing period.
2. In medicine, systematically observed over time in the same subjects throughout as opposed to synchronic or cross-sectional; the inferences are equivalent only where there is strict stability of all elements.
3. Pertaining to or designating a method of linguistic study concerned with the historical development of a language; historical, as opposed to descriptive or synchronic.
4. In archaeology, denoting actions or things which occur over time, as in the study of artifacts in a region as they change across sequential periods of time.
1. The existence of a geological feature that transgresses palaeontological zones; for example, there is a great divergence between the lithological and chronological classification.
2. The existence within a single geologic formation of regions of rock that were laid down at different times; for example, by a sea that gradually covered a landmass.
3. In botany, having two periods of growth in the year.
1. In geology, a rock unit, varying in age in different areas or cutting across time planes or biostratigraphic zones; time-transgressive.
2. Describing a lithological unit whose age varies from place to place, or a lithological unit (rock formation) which cuts across various times or biostratigraphic zones.
3. A geological deposit in which a sedimentary rock formation apparently consists of similar material, but varies in age from place to place.

For example, as a shoreline advances or retreats, a succession of continuous deposits representing different environments; such as, beach, shallow water, and deeper water, may be left behind as their ages vary depending on the positions of the shorelines through the various time sequences.

A disturbance in the consciousness of time.
Not agreeing as to time; separate as to time.
dyschronous, dyschronism
Disturbed time relation, especially that which occurs after transportation from one time zone to another that is five to ten hours ahead or behind.

This leads to disturbances of biological rhythms.

electric converter, synchronous converter, converter
1. A converter in which motor and generator windings are combined on one armature and excited by one magnetic field; normally used to change alternating to direct current.
2. A synchronous machine used to convert alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC), or the reverse.

The AC-to-DC converter has been replaced by a mercury arc rectifier (for reasons of efficiency, lower maintenance costs, and fewer problems) or by motor-generator sets.

gastrochronorrhea (noun) (noun), gastrochronorrheas (pl)
Excessive and continuous gastric secretion: Pete's condition, diagnosed as gastrochronorrhea, was managed by diet, ensuring he did not eat foods that caused his stomach to overproduce certain fluids.
