Christina Dawn Cross

Ms. C. Dawn Cross has performed calibrations of industrial thermometers at NIST since 1996. In this work, she has calibrated an extremely large variety of thermometers, including platinum resistance thermometers, thermistors, thermocouples, and a large variety of liquid-in-glass thermometers. She is both a member and officer of ASTM committee E20 on Temperature, and a member of ASTM D2 on Petroleum, affording her an excellent perspective on the needs of industrial users. She has authored papers on the uncertainties of thermistor and liquid-in-glass thermometers.
