A brief review given of temperature scales, their definition, and measurement. Methods of practical temperature measurement are described. Differences between internationally accepted temperature scales are presented graphically and in tabular form; comparisons are also given for several national temperature scales. Emphasis has been placed on temperatures below 0°C, but some information on temperatures above 0°C has also been included. Suggested methods of conversion between different temperature scales are described.
