Glossary for Lamellibrachia luymesi van der Land and Nørrevang, 1975
- Back-arc basin
- A depression in the sea floor that results from the collision of continental plates; the weight of the sinking plate causes the overlying plate to stretch and thin, causing a basin in the overlying plate. Sometimes, the Earth's crust in these basins stretches so much it cracks, allowing magma through from the mantle beneath. Hence, basins often contain active volcanoes and hydrothermal vents.
- An area of water bordered by land on three sides.
- A major class of ecologically similar communities of plants, animals, and other organisms. Biomes are defined based on factors such as plant structures (such as trees, shrubs, and grasses), leaf types (such as broadleaf and needleleaf), plant spacing (forest, woodland, savanna), and other factors like climate. Unlike ecozones, biomes are not defined by genetic, taxonomic, or historical similarities. Biomes are often identified with particular patterns of ecological succession and climax vegetation.
- Cold seep
- An area of the ocean floor where hydrogen sulfide, methane and other hydrocarbon-rich fluid seepage occurs. Cold seeps are distinct from hydrothermal vents: the former's emissions are of the same temperature as the surrounding seawater, whereas the latter's emissions are super-heated.
- Continental shelf
- The extended perimeter of each continent, which is covered during interglacial periods such as the current epoch by relatively shallow sea.
- A plane angle unit which is equal to 1/360 of a full rotation or 1.7453310^[-2] rad.
- Degrees Celsius
- Drainage basin
- A regions or area bounded by drainage divides and occupied by a drainage system; specifically the tract of country that gathers water originating as precipitation and contributes it to a particular stream channel or system of channels, or to a lake, reservoir, or other body of water.
- A landform elevated above the surrounding area.
- Geographic distribution
- A description of the geographic distribution, or range, of the taxon. Includes descriptions of global, regional, or political aspects of range and whether the taxon is native or introduced in portions of the range and endemicity.
- The natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a species population.

- A place where ships may shelter from the weather or are stored.
- Hydrothermal vent
- A fissure in the Earths's surface from which geothermally heated water issues.
- Lake sediment
- The geographic latitude (in decimal degrees, using the spatial reference system given in geodeticDatum) of the geographic center of a Location. Positive values are north of the Equator, negative values are south of it. Legal values lie between -90 and 90, inclusive.
- The geographic longitude (in decimal degrees, using the spatial reference system given in geodeticDatum) of the geographic center of a Location. Positive values are east of the Greenwich Meridian, negative values are west of it. Legal values lie between -180 and 180, inclusive.
- Meters. A length unit which is equal to the length of the path traveled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299 792 458 of a second.
- Milliliters per liter. A volume per unit volume unit which is equal to one millionth of a liter of solute in one liter of solution.
- Continuous saline-water bodies that surround the continents and fill the Earth's great depressions.
- A dimensionless ratio unit which denotes numbers as fractions of 100.
- Practical Salinity Units. The conductivity ratio of a sea water sample to a standard KCl solution. Used to represent salinity.
- Saline water
- Area covered with low-growing or stunted perennial vegetation and usually not mixed with trees.
- Sea floor
- The ground surface that lies beneath a sea.
- Seawater depth
- The depth of seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- Seawater dissolved O2
- Dissolved oxygen concentration in seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- Seawater nitrate
- Dissolved nitrate concentration in seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- Seawater O2 saturation
- The percent oxygen saturation in seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- Seawater phosphate
- Dissolved phosphate concentration in seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- Seawater salinity
- Dissolved salt concentration in seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- Seawater silicate
- Dissolved silicate concentration in seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- Seawater temperature
- Temperature of seawater at a location where this organism has been observed or collected.
- A point where groundwater or steam flows out of the ground, and is thus where the aquifer surface meets the ground surface or where there is a fissure.
- Land having a cover of trees, shrubs, or both.
- A unit of molarity which is equal to one millionth of a molar or 10^[-6] mol/L
