Definitions for **"Clinometer"**

An instrument for determining the dip of beds or strata, pr the slope of an embankment or cutting; a kind of plumb level.

A hand instrument used in measuring the heights of trees and percent slope.

A device, usually similar to a compass, used to measure vertical angles, as in the slope of a hill.

a simple instrument for measuring vertical angles or slopes. In forestry, used to measure distance and tree heights.

An instrument for determining the angle of a slope. Knowing the distance from a tree and using a clinometer to measure its angle, an observer can be estimate the hight of a tree.

Instrument for measuring a gradient's steepness.

Hand-held instrument used for measuring percent of trail grade.

An instrument for measuring angles of inclination. Used in conjunction with a ceiling light to measure cloud height at night.

A compact hand held level used for approximating angles of elevation or depression and/or percentage slopes.

an instrument used to determine the height of a tree.

An instrument for measuring vertical angles, or angles of dip.

An instrument used to measure the angles of elevation of high objects. A simple clinometer can be made from ruler, protractor and string 'bob'.

an instrument used by surveyors in order to measure an angle of inclination or elevation

a handy device for determining slope (in percent) and for measuring tree height

a measuring device you use to measure the angle of a line of sight above or below horizontal

a relatively simple instrument used for the measurement of a vertical angle from the horizontal

a useful tool for measuring slope percentages

A tool that measures angles to determine the heights of objects without directly measuring them.

a tool used to determine height of tree at given distance

Surveying instrument used to measure inclinations from the vertical.

a feature found on some compasses that allows the compass to measure vertical angles, like the slope of a hill. It can also be used as a level.

This feature is found on the 15TD-CL, 25TD-CL/E and Voyager 8040 compasses. It allows the compass to measure vertical angles like the slope of a hill. It can also be used as a level.

An instrument used to measure angles of inclination. Used in conjunction with a ceiling light, it determines cloud height at night, based on the angle of a projected light on the clouds, the observer, and the ceiling light.

a hand level, an instrument for measuring slopes or heights.

A device that measures the angular distance in degrees from the horizon to an object above the horizon. This device that looks similar to a compass, is needed for accurate measurements of an objectâ€™s height above the horizon. (e.g., height of the Sun)

A device for measuring slope angles.

An instrument that is held at eye level to read stump height and merchantable or total height when standing 50 and 66 feet from the base of the tree. The difference between the two readings yields the height.

An instrument used for measuring slopes. Can be used from the ground to measure the heights of trees.

Any of several instruments for measuring inclination, such as the heeling of a ship or portable tank.

an instrument for measuring a ships angle of inclination or heel

A clinometer also known as an inclinometer is an instrument for measuring angles of slope (or tilt), elevation or inclination of an object with respect to gravity. Also known as a tilt meter, tilt indicator, slope meter, slope gauge, gradient meter, gradiometer, level gauge, level meter, pitch & roll indicator.
