WATCHSTANDING

The allocation of crew or staff to a watch.

ADSORPTION

Adhesion of the molecules of gases, liquids, or dissolved substances to a solid surface, resulting in relatively high concentration of the molecules at the place of contact; e.g. the plating out of an anti-wear additive on metal surfaces.

GROUP REPETITION INTERVAL

The specified time interval of a Loran C chain for all stations of the chain to transmit their pulse groups. For each chain a minimum group repetition interval (GRI) is selected of sufficient duration to provide time for each station to transmit its pulse group and additional time between each pulse group so that signals from two or more stations cannot overlap in time anywhere within the coverage area. The GRI is normally stated in terms of tens of microseconds; i.e., the GRI having a duration of 79,900 microseconds is stated as 7900.

GROUP OCCULTING LIGHT

An occulting light in which the occultations are combined in groups, each group including the same number of occultations, and in which the groups are repeated at regular intervals. The intervals of light separating the occultations within each group are of equal duration and this duration is clearly shorter than the duration of the interval of light between two successive groups.

HARMONIC CONSTANTS

The amplitudes and epochs of the harmonic constituents of the tide or tidal current at any place

GROUP QUICK LIGHT

A quick flashing light in which a specified group of flashes is regularly repeated

FRETTING

Wear phenomena taking place between two surfaces having oscillatory relative motion of small amplitude.

ARMATURE BAR

Copper bars used in place of wire windings, in large armatures, generators, or motors.

GROUP FLASHING LIGHT

A flashing light in which the flashes are combined in groups, each group having the same number of flashes, and in which the groups are repeated at regular intervals. The eclipses separating the flashes within each group are of equal duration and this duration is clearly shorter than the duration of the eclipse between two successive groups.

GROUP VERY QUICK LIGHT

A very quick flashing light in which a specified group of flashes is regularly repeated.
