What is the Difference Between Partial Immersion and Total Immersion?

Dear Lab Guy, I’m trying to buy a thermometer and I see reference to partial immersion and total immersion. I have no idea what that means! For total immersion do you need to completely immerse the thermometer? How far do you have to immerse a partial immersion thermometer? Sincerely, Dominick
