gravimetric hygrometry

A method using absorption of water vapor by a desiccant from a known volume of air.

The mass of water vapor is determined through the weighing of the drying agent before and after absorbing the vapor. This method is used mostly in national calibration laboratories for providing an absolute reference standard.
