Dry mass

Definition
noun
(1) A reliable measure of the biomass (as opposed to fresh mass).
(2) The dry matter of a sample or of an object when completely dried (lacks or excluding water).
Supplement
Dry mass is a more reliable measure of mass than fresh mass because the former excludes the fluctuating water concentrations in the biological material measured which is present in the latter.
