    shaken the measure of trust

    Does "shaken the measure of trust" mean " shaken the level of trust"?


    -------------------
    In recent years a number of events have shaken the measure of trust that the public holds for the application of science and the advances it offers society. Although many of these crises in confidence have arisen due to flawed implementation of policy rather than bad science, the scientific community must remain vigilant in order to preserve the trust and value that society affords scientific progress.

    Re: shaken the measure of trust

    It means that people trust the application of science less. so level/degree would also work IMO.
