    • n calorimetry The measurement of the quantity of heat in thermal units (see thermal and calory) which a body absorbs or gives out in passing through a certain range of temperature, or in changing its state (as in fusion or vaporization), or the heat which is produced by chemical combination; the art or process of using the calorimeter.

The most important question is whether the measurement can be made with calorimetry alone or if tracking is required.
AnDY : Overview and Plans Feasibility Test of Large Rapidity Drell-Yan Production at RHIC
Introduction: Particle Flow Calorimetry At a future lepton collider, such as the ILC or CLIC , the measurement of hadronic jets will play an important role in discovering or exploring physics beyond the current Standard Model of Particle Physics.
Development of Particle Flow Calorimetry
So, for instance the digital hadron calorimeter prototype (DHCAL) contains close to half a million readout channels, a world record in calorimetry and more than the sum of all readout channels of the four LHC calorimeters.
