Definitions for "AMD"
Age-related Macular Degeneration. A disease of the eye affecting the retina (see below). People with AMD lose their ability to see fine detail. There are two types of AMD, called 'wet' and 'dry' AMD. Photodynamic therapy (see below) is a treatment for wet AMD.
Acronym for age-related macular degeneration. A degeneration of the photoreceptors in the macula or central region of the retina. This area of the retina is responsible for central vision, for reading, seeing faces, and so on. Often associated with aging. See Age-related Macular Degeneration in Eye Care Encyclopedia.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration. An acquired retinal disorder characterized by degeneration in the central (macular) area of the retina. This is the leading cause of blindness in persons over age 65.

acid mine drainage. (3) the exposure, usually as a result of mining, of sulfide bearing minerals to air and water, forming sulfuric acid. This acid dissolves metals such as lead, zinc, copper, arsenic, selenium, mercury, and cadmium into ground and surface water. Acid rock/mine drainage can poison ground and drinking water and destroy aquatic life and habitat. Commonly mined ore bodies that pose the risk of acid rock drainage include gold, silver, copper, iron, zinc and lead. (4) low pH drainage derived from materials with an insufficient capacity to neutralize the acidic products of sulfide and elemental sulfur oxidation and the dissolution products of acidic minerals and amorphous materials. ARD is produced when the neutralization potential is no longer capable of maintaining neutral pH conditions. In the context of mining, may be referred to as acid mine drainage (AMD).
acid mine drainage. Acidic, heavy-metals-laden stream contamination resulting from the drainage of water that contains acidic soils and tailings (residues) from the mining process. Usually associated with surface and underground coal mining.
abandoned mine drainage. Drainage flowing from or caused by surface mining, deep mining or coal refuse piles that is typically highly acidic with elevated levels of dissolved metals.
Automounter Daemon. We run the Berkeley automounter daemon ( amd) on all our workstations to establish file system access between workstations. When you log on, amd figures out what machine to get your files from and mounts them to the machine you are logging into.

A type of flat-panel display in which the screen is refreshed frequently for superior resolution. The most common type of active matrix display is based on technology known as TFT (thin film transistor). TFT technology provides the best resolution of all flat-panel display techniques. The two terms are often used interchangeably.
Amplitude Modification Device (AMD)is used to further optimize the aluminum dome's output, without taking anything away. AMD is a patented acoustical tuning device that uses precisely sized hollow tubes positioned in front of the tweeter to refocus short wavelength energy and create an extremely smooth, flat response. This is done without using elaborate electronic components that can degrade the sound's purity.
