Science / Marine Biology / Boundary Layer: A layer of fluid near a surface, where flow is affected by viscous properties of the fluid. At the surface, fluid velocity must be zero, and the boundary layer is a thin film that depends on surface texture, fluid velocity in the 'mainstream of flow,' and fluid mass properties such as salinity.
Boundary Noun Synonyms: border(s), limit(s), frontier(s), bound(s), confines, perimeter
