Definitions for "Anomaly"
Deviation from the common rule; an irregularity; anything anomalous.
The angle measuring apparent irregularities in the motion of a planet.
Any deviation from the essential characteristics of a specific type.
A feature distinguished by geological, geophysical, or geochemical means, which is different from the general surroundings, and which may be indicative of a zone of potential exploration interest.
an area identified as having a significantly different signature (geochemical and/or geophysical) than the host region or other regions on average, which may be indicative of a zone of potential exploration interest.
the geographical area corresponding to anomalous geochemical or geophysical values
The angular distance of a planet from its perihelion, as seen from the sun. This is the true anomaly. The eccentric anomaly is a corresponding angle at the center of the elliptic orbit of the planet. The mean anomaly is what the anomaly would be if the planet's angular motion were uniform.
angular measurement of a body in its orbit from its perihelion.
In an orbit, the angle between the position of an object and the position at which it is closest to the object that it is orbiting.
Any paranormal experience or event documented through photography that once captured on film cannot be explained by normal means or standards.
Neutral term applied to a phenomenon which implies that the phenomenon is unexpected according to conventional scientific knowledge, but which does not commit the user to any particular type of explanation; sometimes sometimes preferred to “paranormal.
Anything that is odd or doesn't look quite right. This could be due to human error, equipment malfunction, or an interesting but unexpected scientific phenomenon.
the difference between the current SST value and its long term average
The difference between the value of a variable (for example temperature) at a given location and its long term average at that location.
a contradiction between theory and experience
In quantum physics an anomaly or quantum anomaly is the failure of a symmetry of a theory's classical action to be a symmetry of any regularization of the full quantum theory. In classical physics an anomaly is the failure of a symmetry to be restored in the limit in which the symmetry-breaking parameter goes to zero. Perhaps, the first known anomaly was the dissipative anomaly in turbulence: time-reversibility remains broken (and energy dissipation rate finite) at the limit of vanishing viscosity.
Anomaly is a fictional character in the DC Comics universe. He made his debut appearance in Adventures of Superman #539.
Describes any change in subsurface conditions, caused by factors such as mineralisation, change in rock types, structural conditions or even depths of overburden. While most anomalies suggest the possibility of a mineral deposit, only a handful lead to worthwhile discoveries.
Geological term describing changes in underlying bedrock structure which may indicate the presence of an orebody.
"Anomaly" is the title of a Star Trek: Enterprise television episode from season three.
a rule or practice that is different from what is normal or usual, and which is therefore unsatisfactory
an alteration in what is normal, such as a birth defect a child is born with.
variation from the normal
a divergence from the background levels of physical or chemical properties of an area under survey.
A continuously varying signal, as opposed to a discretely varying (digital) signal.
A difference between a measured value and a value which would normally be expected.
change from what is normally expected.
