высота над уровнем моря[edit]

SOP: высота́ + над + у́ровнем + мо́ря (vysotá + nad + úrovnem + mórja) --WikiTiki89 17:49, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Is this the shortest or most common way to say this in Russian? If so, I would keep is as the most common way to render "altitude" (the height measured from sea level up to any given point). In Czech, we have "nadmořská výška" rather than "výška nad úrovní moře". google:"высота над уровнем моря". --Dan Polansky (talk) 21:42, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
    Normally you'd just say высота (vysota, height) unless you want to specify specifically that you mean "above sea level". --WikiTiki89 21:48, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Keep as idiomatic. Yes, it can be broken up into components but this is the shortest and standard form for the narrow sense - "height measured from sea" of altitude. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 22:15, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Just to be clear here, "altitude" does not have to be measured from sea level. That is just a convention. --WikiTiki89 22:34, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it's a precise term, which is often used to distinguish the absolute altitude from the relative. In this precision sense альтиту́да (alʹtitúda) is a synonym of "высота над уровнем моря", even if the English term "altitude" does not have to be measured from sea level. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 23:18, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Kept. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад)
