A compound that causes reduction, thereby itself becoming oxidized.

A reaction in which there is a decrease in valence resulting from a gain in electrons. Contrast with oxidation.

In general, the transformation of data from a "raw" form to some useable form. In meteorology, this often refers to the conversion of the observed value of an element to the value which it would theoretically have at some selected or standard level. The m ...

To reduce the area of a sail by making fast the reef points (used in rough weather).

Category:Sea Words

Reinforced cringles or thimbles in the sail designed to hold the reefing lines when reefing the sail.

Also known as the square knot, it is formed by two half hitches in which the ends always fall in line with the outer parts. This knot is used to loosely tie lines around the bundles of sail that are not in use after reefing.

Category:Sea Words

Short pieces of line fastened to the sail at reef points, used for tying a reef to reduce sail area. The reef line will pass through reef cringles, which will become the new tack and clew of the reefed sail.

Category:Sea Words

Short lengths of line attached to the sail used to tie the extra sail out of the way when reefing.
