calibration

The process whereby the magnitude of the output of a measuring instrument (e.g., the level of mercury in a thermometer or the detected backscatter power of a meteorological radar) is related to the magnitude of the input force (e.g., the temperature
or radar reflectivity) actuating that instrument.
