Fr.: osmium

From Gk. osme "smell" because of the sharp odor of the volatile oxide.


Fr.: osmose   

The process by which solvent molecules pass through a partially permeable membrane from a dilute solution into a more concentrated solution, thus equalizing the concentrations of materials on either side of the membrane. → permeability.

Extracted from Fr. endosmose "endosmosis" and exosmose "exosmosis," from Gk. prefixed osmos "a thrusting, a pushing," from othein "to push, to thrust;" cf. Av. vādāiiôit "breaks through, hunts," vadah- "wedge;" Mod.Pers. guvah, gavah "wedge;" Skt. vadh- "to slay, kill," vadha- "killer."

Ostriker-Peebles criterion
  سنجیدار ِ استرایکر-پیبلس   
sanjidâr-e Ostriker-Peebles

Fr.: critère d'Ostriker-Peebles   

An approximate empirical criterion for the stability of a → galactic disk against its collapse to form a bar. The disk is stable if the following relation holds: T/|W| < 0.14, where T is the rotational → kinetic energy and |W| is the absolute value of the gravitational → potential energy. While the → Toomre criterion applies only to small linear perturbations, the Ostriker-Peebles criterion describes global modes.

  ا ُسبلک   

Fr.: sursaut   

1) A fairly brief period of unusually strong gas and/or dust production from a comet nucleus.
2) A brief period of enhancement of emission from a star, a quasar, etc.

out; → burst.

outburst decay
  تباهی ِ اسبلک   
tabâhi-ye osbelk


A phase in the → light curve evolution of eruptive objects such as → dwarf novae, → Soft X-ray Transients, and transient → magnetars which follows the characterized sudden increase in their flux (over a factor ~ 1000 over the quiescent level). Outburst decay is slow and lasts months or years.

outburst; → decay.

borunšod (#)

Fr.: issue, résultat   

A final product or end result; consequence; issue (

out; → come.

Borunšod "outcome," from borun, → out, + šod, šodan "to go, to pass, to change," → become.

borunzad (#)

Fr.: affleurement   

Emergence of a particular rock-body, e.g. a stratium or vein, at the ground surface. Outcrops can be formed naturally or by human action. Stream erosion and highway construction can produce outcrops.

Noun use of crop out, from crop, from M.E., O.E. cropp "bird's craw," also "head or top of a sprout or herb;" → out.

The upper zone of the → Earth's core, just below the → mantle, extending from a depth of about 2900 km to 5100 km.

The → temperature ranges from 4400 °C in the outer areas to 6100 °C near the → inner core. Since shear waves do not propagate through a fluid, the Earth's outer core is considered to be liquid because the shear wave velocity is zero. Convection motion within the outer core, along with the rotation of the Earth creates an effect that maintains the Earth's → magnetic field.
