Thermosteric Anomaly

Science / Tides and Currents / Thermosteric Anomaly: The specific volume anomaly (steric anomaly) that would be attained if the water were changed isothermally to a standard pressure of one atmosphere. The specific volume anomaly with pressure terms omitted. See isanostere.

Specific Volume Anomaly, Or Steric Anomaly

Science / Tides and Currents / Specific Volume Anomaly, Or Steric Anomaly: The excess in specific volume over the standard specific volume at 35 ‰, 0°C, and the given pressure. See thermosteric anomaly and specific volume. MORE

Anomaly

Science / Tides and Currents / Anomaly: As applied to astronomy, the anomaly is the angle made at any time by the radius vector of a planet or moon with its line of apsides, the angle being reckoned from perihelion or perigee in the directi MORE

Magnetic Anomaly

Science / Geology / Magnetic Anomaly: The value of the local magnetic field remaining after the subtraction of the dipole portion of the Earth's field. MORE

Gravity Anomaly

Science / Geology / Gravity Anomaly: The value of gravity left after subtracting from a gravity measurement the reference value based on latitude, and possibly the free-air and Bouguer corrections. MORE

Geopotential Anomaly

Science / Tides and Currents / Geopotential Anomaly: The excess in geopotential difference over the standard geopotential difference [at a standard specific volume at 35 parts per thousand (?€°) and 0 degrees C] between isobaric surfaces. See geopote MORE
