time zone

Any of the 24 divisions of the Earth's surface used to determine the local time for any given locality. Each zone is roughly 15° of longitude in width, with local variations. Local time is one hour ahead for each time zone as one travels east, and one hour behind for each time zone as one travels west. So, for example, when it is noon in New York City, it is 11:00 a.m. in Chicago, 10:00 a.m. in Denver, and 9:00 a.m. in Los Angeles. See more at International Date Line.
