Telmatology

I wanted to compare Formula-1-Racing.net's own glossary definition of Telemetry ("data from the hundreds of sensors on the car that provides the team with real-time information such as throttle position, speed, braking forces, temperatures, etc.") with an OED definition.

Instead I found today's word (in Volume XI), defined as That department of physiography which deals with peat-bogs.

I was interested in the original word, the Formula 1 word, largely because I like the way "Needing/Getting" sounds in OK Go's "official" video.

Peat bogs have their own appeal, of course, because where would we be without moss?
