hy·drom·e·ter

(hī-drŏm′ĭ-tər)
An instrument used to measure the density of a liquid as compared to that of water. Hydrometers consist of a calibrated glass tube ending in a weighted glass sphere that makes the tube stand upright. The lower the density of the liquid, the deeper the tube sinks.

The main cause of degradation of the buildings, statues and non-sheltered archaeological vestiges is the climate, comprised of the result of various factors, among which temperature, humidity (rainfall, condensation and hydrometrical state), too strong sunlight, wind and air composition through high salt levels of the air in sea areas, air polluted by industrial residues and other human activities, percentage of O2 or CO2 etc.
The coefficients in equation (1) can be obtained for each hydrometrical station and can be used to estimate sediment transport in similar stations using water flow rates measurements only.
