from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- Of or pertaining to orometry or the measurement of mountains, especially to averages of altitudes: as, “an orometric- anthropogeographical study.”
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The method of anthropo-geography is essentially analytical, and therefore finds little use for general orometric statements, which may be valuable to the science of geo-morphology with its radically different standpoint.
