tectono-eustasy

tectono-eustasy (tec'-ton-o-eu'-sta-sy). Worldwide change of sea level produced by a change in the capacity of the ocean basins owing to plate tectonic motions, e.g. sea-floor spreading, subduction. Term introduced by Fairbridge (1961, p.111). Cf: glacio-eustasy; sedimento-eustasy. Syn: diastrophic eustatism; tectono-eustatism.

blue hole

blue hole . (a) A subsurface void developed in carbonate banks and islands, also offshore. It is open to the Earth's surface; contains tidally influenced waters of fresh, marine, or mixed chemistry; extends below sea level for the majority of its depth; and may provide access to cave passages (Mylroie et al., 1995). Cf: inland blue hole; ocean hole. (b) An obsolete term for a resurgence.

deglaciation

deglaciation (de''-gla-ci-a'-tion). The uncovering of a land area from beneath a glacier or ice sheet by the withdrawal of ice due to shrinkage by melting or calving of icebergs. As used in Great Britain, the term is restricted to a process that occurred in the past, in contrast to deglacierization. Also, the result of deglaciation.
