A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: An instrument for detecting or measuring faint tremors caused by an earthquake.
From Greek tromos (trembling). Earliest documented use: 1878.
“A tromometer being perfectly at rest whilst a heavy gale was blowing round the observatory shows that the connection between two sets of phenomena is not so close as might at first be supposed.”
John Milne; Seismology; Cambridge; 1898.
