    A remarkably wide range of human activities depends on reliable measurements. As all industrialised countries, Britain ensures that a system of national reference standards is in place to provide the basis for the accurate measurement of quantities as diverse as length, colour, frequency, and radioactivity. The author discusses the value of measurement to society and explores a variety of importan... View full abstract»
