Of a comprehensive framework that transcends the partial scope of disciplinary worldviews through an overarching synthesis, such as general systems, feminist theory, and sustainability. The term also connotes a new structure of unity informed by the worldview of complexity in science and a new mode of knowledge production that draws on expertise from a wider range of organizations, and collaborations with stakeholders in society.

transient lunar phenomenon (TLP)
padide-ye mângi-ye gozarâ, ~ mâhi-ye
Fr.: phénomène lunaire transitoire
A short-lived change in the brightness of patches on the face of the Moon. The TLPs last from a few seconds to a few hours and can grow from less than a few to a hundred kilometers in size.

Several theories have been proposed, among which lunar outgassing, that is, gas being released from the surface of the Moon.
