Scientific study of glaciers, or more generally ice and natural phenomena that involve ice.
Ablation (or wastage) zone – when the sum of melting, calving, and evaporation (sublimation) is greater than the amount of snow added each year.
Transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas state, without passing through the liquid state.
Ablation is a process that includes sublimation and erosive wear of glacier ice.
Process of removing material from a solid (or occasionally liquid) surface by irradiating it with a laser beam.
Usually, laser ablation refers to removing material with a pulsed laser, but it is possible to ablate material with a continuous wave laser beam if the laser intensity is high enough.
Components or systems of a building or structure that slows or impedes the spread the effects of fire or smoke without system activation, and usually without movement.
PFP measures also include intumescents and ablative materials.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), also called fulguration, is a medical procedure in which part of the electrical conduction system of the heart, tumor or other dysfunctional tissue is ablated using the heat generated from medium frequency alternating current (in the range of 350–500 kHz).
Movement of an object from outer space into and through the gases of an atmosphere of a planet, dwarf planet, or natural satellite.
These forces can cause loss of mass (ablation) or even complete disintegration of smaller objects, and objects with lower compressive strength can explode.
Fast heart rate arising from the lower chambers of the heart.
Catheter ablation is a potentially definitive treatment option for those with recurrent VT. Remote magnetic navigation is one effective method to do the procedure.
Exciplex laser, is a form of ultraviolet laser which is commonly used in the production of microelectronic devices, semiconductor based integrated circuits or "chips", eye surgery, and micromachining.
Rather than burning or cutting material, the excimer laser adds enough energy to disrupt the molecular bonds of the surface tissue, which effectively disintegrates into the air in a tightly controlled manner through ablation rather than burning.
A rocket engine uses stored rocket propellants as the reaction mass for forming a high-speed propulsive jet of fluid, usually high-temperature gas.
1) Ablative: the inside walls are lined with a material that traps heat and vaporizes.
Process that uses extreme cold to destroy tissue.
The term is from cryo- + ablation.
