Technical Committee for Thermometry

Temperature is one of the most frequently measured physical quantities in science and industry. That implies that precise knowledge of temperature and related quantities is fundamentally important for the development of new and more efficient production techniques saving energy and other resources and reducing waste and for control of societal problems of environment, climate and security.

The Technical Committee of Thermometry is concerned with all issues of measurement of

  • temperature,
  • humidity and moisture, and
  • thermophysical quantities of materials
  • as well as with scales, standards and reference materials necessary for metrology in these fields.
