isohyet (rainfall), isobath (depth).
Some failed to get off the ground, e.g.
isonoet (lines of equal IQ), found I believe
only in one study of IQ patterns in Tasmania.
Few students can escape intermediate microeconomics (or beyond) without learning about "isoquants": the set of combinations of factor inputs that generate the same level (quantity) of output for a given production function.
