coronal rain
  باران ِ هورتاجی   
bârân-e hurtâji

Fr.: pluie coronale   

Material that condenses in the Sun's corona and appears to rain down into the chromosphere, as observed at the solar limb above strong sunspots.

coronal; → rain.

coronal streamer
  درفشک ِ هورتاجی   
derafšak-e hurtâji

Fr.: grand jet coronal   

A bright, narrow stream of particles traveling through the Sun's corona, visible in images taken with a coronagraph or during a total solar eclipse. Coronal streamers represent the most outwardly extended structures in the solar corona and result from the interaction between the solar slow wind and the large-scale magnetic field. → helmet streamer.

coronal; → streamer.

coronium
  کورونیوم   
koroniom

Fr.: coronium   

A hypothetical chemical element once thought to be at the origin of the → coronal lines seen during a solar → total eclipse

From coron-, from → corona + → -ium

CoRot
  کورو   
Corot

Fr.: CoRot   

An astronomical satellite led by the French Space Agency (CNES) in conjunction with the European Space Agency (ESA) and other international partners. Launched on 27 December 2006, its two objectives are to search for → extrasolar planets with short → orbital periods, particularly those of large terrestrial size, and to perform → asteroseismology by measuring solar-like oscillations in stars. Corot is the first spacecraft dedicated to extrasolar planet detection. It is equipped with a 27-cm diameter afocal telescope and four CCD cameras sensitive to tiny variations of the light intensity from stars. Corot detected its first extrasolar planet, Corot-1b, in May 2007. Mission flight operations were originally scheduled to end 2.5 years from launch but they have been extended to January 2010.

CoRot, acronym from → COnvection, → ROtation, and planetary → Transits, chosen for its similarity to the name of the French painter Jean Baptiste Camille Corot (1796-1875), the first of the great modern landscapists, who marked a significant departure from academic tradition and strongly influenced the development of landscape painting in the 19th century.

corotate
  هم‌چرخیدن   
hamcarxidan

Fr.: être en corotation   

To rotate jointly with or at the same speed as another rotating body.

co-; → rotate.

corotating interaction region (CIR)
  ناحیه‌ی ِ اندرژیرش ِ هم‌چرخنده   
nâhiye-ye andaržireš-e hamcarxandé

Fr.: région d'interaction en corotation   

A spiral-shaped density enhancement formed around a star when fast stellar winds collide with slower material. This large-scale wind structure can extend from the stellar surface to possibly several tens of stellar radii. The CIRs can be produced by intensity irregularities at the stellar surface, such as dark and bright spots, magnetic loops and fields, or non-radial pulsations. The surface intensity variations alter the radiative wind acceleration locally, which creates streams of faster and slower wind material. CIRs are responsible for the → discrete absorption components seen in some ultraviolet → resonance lines of → hot stars (S. R. Cranmer & S. P. Owocki, 1996, ApJ 462, 469).

corotate; → interaction; → region.

corotation
  هم‌چرخش   
hamcarxeš

Fr.: corotation   

The act of corotating.

Verbal noun of → corotate.

corotation radius
  شعاع ِ هم‌چرخش   
šoâ'-e ham-carxeš

Fr.: rayon de corotation   

1) In the → X-wind model of → accretion, the distance from the star where the → centrifugal force on a particle corotating with the star balances the → gravitational attraction; in other words, where the → accretion disk rotates at the same → angular velocity as the star.
2) In a → spiral galaxy, the place where the spiral → pattern speed has the same velocity as the → rotation curve of the → galactic disk. In the frame rotating with the wave, particles inside this radius will appear to revolve in the direction of the frame rotation (prograde) while outside this corotation radius, they will be retrograde.

corotation; → radius.

corotation resonance
  باز‌آوایی ِ هم‌چرخش   
bâzâvâyi-ye ham-carxeš

Fr.: résonance de corotation   

That condition of a → galactic disk at an orbital radius in which the → angular velocity of the disk equals the → pattern speed. It is significant that the spiral wave pattern rotates as a rigid body (ΩP = const), whereas the galactic disk rotates differentially (Ω is a function of galactocentric distance r). The distance rC at which the two angular velocities coincide (Ω(rC) = ΩP) is referred to as the → corotation radius. The corotation resonance and its position within the galaxy is one of the fundamental properties of a spiral galaxy.

corotation; → resonance.

corposant
  آتش ِ سپنت المو   
âtaš-e sepant Elmo

Fr.: feu de Saint-Elme   

Same as → Saint Elmo's fire.

From Portuguese corpo santo "holy body," from L. corpus sanctum; → corpuscle; → heiligenschein.

corpuscle
  کرپول   
karpul

Fr.: corpuscule   

A discrete particle, such as a → photon or an → electron. See also → corpuscular radiation, → corpuscular theory of light.

From L. corpusculum, dim. of corpus "body," cf. Av. kehrp-, kərəf- "body, form," Skt. krp- "body, form," O.E. hrif "belly," O.H.G. href "womb, belly, abdomen;" Ger. Körper (originally Korper) is a loan word from L. corpus; PIE *kwrpes, from base *kwrep- "body, form." → -ule.

Karpul, from Mid.Pers. karp "body, form," cognate with L. corpus, as above, + diminutive suffix → -ule.

corpuscular radiation
  تابش ِ کرپولی   
tâbeš-e karpuli

Fr.: rayonnement corpusculaire   

A stream of atomic or subatomic particles.

Corpuscular, adj. from → corpuscle; → radiation.

corpuscular theory of light
  نگره‌ی ِ کرپولی ِ نور   
negare-ye karpuli-ye nur

Fr.: théorie corpusculaire de la lumière   

Newton's theory according to which light is made up of point-like particles without any mass. It failed to explains several phenomena: simultaneous reflection and refraction at a semi-transparent boundary, interference, diffraction and polarization. Moreover, it requested that the speed of light be greater in a denser medium than in a rarer medium; this prediction is contrary to experimental results. In 1924 Louis de Broglie postulated that matter has not only a corpuscular nature but also a wave nature, and subsequent experiments confirmed de Broglie's model.

Corpuscular, adj. from → corpuscle; → theory, → light.

correct
  ۱) ارشا؛ ۲) ارشاییدن   
1) aršâ; 2) aršâyidan

Fr.: 1) correct; 2) corriger   

1) Free from error; conforming to an acknowledged or accepted standard or fact; true or accurate.
2) To remove the errors or mistakes from. → bolometric correction, → correcting plate, → correction, → corrector, → ionization correction factor, → K correction, → Malmquist correction, → Rydberg correction, → wavefront correction.

From L. correctus, p.p. of corrigere "make straight, put right," from → com- intens. prefix + regere "to guide, direct, rule," cf. Av. raz- "to direct, lead," razišta- "straightest, most correct," erezu- "correct, straight," râzayeiti "directs," O.Pers. râs- "to be right, straight, true," râsta- "staright, true," Mod.Pers. râst "right, straight, true," Skt. raj- "to direct, stretch," rjuyant- "walking straight," Gk. orektos "stretched out," Ger. recht, E. right; PIE base *reg- "right, just; to move in a straight line."

1) Aršâ, from Av. arš, ereš, erež "rightly, truly," as in arš.dâta- "rightly made," arš.manah- "whose thinking is right," arš.vacah- "whose speaking is right," erešya- "righteous, just," cf. O.Pers. arta- "law, justice," Skt. rta- "cosmic order," Gk. arti "just," artios "complete;" PIE base ar- "to fit together, join."

Note: For the sake of clarity, we avoid the Persian term dorost because its dominant meaning is "entire, complete, whole, safe, sound," although it means also "accurate, correct." Etymology: Mid.Pers. drust "straight, right, healthy," drôd "health, thriving," Parthian rwd "health, thriving," O.Pers. duruva- "firm, certain, immune," Av. drava- "healthy," Skt. dhruva- "fixed, firm, lasting," druh- "to be firm," Proto-Iranian *druua-.
