The error that occurs during a mass determination with a digital analytical balance when a value is read, printed, or processed before the display has reached its final position.

GYRO ERROR

The error in the reading of the gyrocompass, expressed in degrees east or west to indicate the direction in which the axis of the compass is offset from true north.

HALVING

The process of adjusting magnetic compass correctors so as to remove half of the deviation on the opposite cardinal or adjacent intercardinal headings to those on which adjustment was originally made when all deviation was removed. This is done to equalize the error on opposite headings.

HYSTERESIS ERROR

That error in the reading of an instrument due to hysteresis

INDEX CORRECTION

The correction due to index error

EFFECTIVE RANGE

The range of values of the measured quantity for which any single measurement, obtained under specified conditions of use of a measuring instrument, should not be in error by more than a specified amount. NOTE: The effective range may be the whole or a specified part of the interval between the lower and upper range limits. Also known as measuring range, working range

SUPPLEMENTARY ERROR

The error of a measuring instrument arising from the fact that the values of the influence quantities differ from those corresponding to the reference conditions.

TOTAL ERROR

The whole error of a measuring instrument under specified conditions of use.

INSTRUMENT CORRECTION

That correction due to instrument error

INDEX ERROR

The error in the reading of an instrument equal to the difference between the zero of the scale and the zero of the index. In a marine sextant it is due primarily to lack of parallelism of the index mirror and the horizon glass at zero reading.

IONOSPHERIC ERROR

The total systematic and random error resulting from the reception of a navigation signal after ionospheric reflections. It may be due to variations in transmission paths, non-uniform height of the ionosphere, or non-uniform propagation within the iono- sphere. Also called IONOSPHERIC-PATH ERROR, SKYWAVE ERROR.
