τὸ τῆς θερμασίας βάθος - an accusative of respect?

τὸ τῆς θερμασίας βάθος is a phrase I have used so many times that I (almost)
know where to put the accents but I realize I am not quite sure what that means.
I have for long taken it to be
the depth of the heat (is 20 by the Celsius scale).

Reading Taylor's "Writing Greek" the other day it struck me that maybe it should instead be an accusative of respect. But when I ...

greek weather words and phrases

This is from my database of weather words.
I first used "Reading Greek" which has its own system of classifying noun declensions.
Hence 3a is the most common 3rd declension for feminine and masculine nouns.
I may change it to the more conventional nom + gen form.
Definitions as relevant to weather rather than full definitions of course/

ἄνυδρος, arid, -ος-ον
θερινός, sumertime, θ. τροπαί or τροπή, -η-ον
θερμος, hot, warm , -η-ον
μεταβολικός, changeable, ...

An Idea for composition posts

When a post is created for a specific topic, for example, The weather post, by markos, I think it would be beneficial to make the initial post have some key words with definitions. This would aid in Vacabulary aquistion and assist in creating smooth posts. There would still be the responsibility of each person knowing general vocabulary, but specialized contextual vocabulary would be more easily internalized!

what do you think?

Sorry if this post should've ...

Unde es?

Salvete!

Multum volo Latine communicare, quod lectiones Latinas nunc facio. Forsitan scribere possumus quisque de nostra republica / terra? Quid dicebitis?

Domus mea Lettonia (Latvia) est, republica parva, quae posita est inter Russiam et Unionem Europaeum (in quo et Lettonia inclusa est). Aestates plerumque breves habemus et hiemes longas, quamquam in annis proximis tempestas calidior facta est.

Et vos?
