colony

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In biology, a colony is composed of two or more conspecific individuals living in close association with, or connected to, one another. This association is usually for mutual benefit such as stronger defense or the ability to attack bigger prey.

Crater may refer to:

crystal

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
A crystal or crystalline solid is a solid material whose constituents (such as atoms, molecules, or ions) are arranged in a highly ordered microscopic structure, forming a crystal lattice that extends in all directions. In addition, macroscopic single crystals are usually identifiable by their geometrical shape, consisting of flat faces with specific, characteristic orientations.

crystals

This instance is a plurality of crystal

domain

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
A territory is an administrative division, usually an area that is under the jurisdiction of a state. In most countries, a territory is an organized land controlled division of an area that is controlled by a country but is not formally developed into, or incorporated into, a political unit of the country that is of equal status to other political units that may often be referred to by words such as "provinces" or "states".

dose

droplet

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
A drop or droplet is a small column of liquid, bounded completely or almost completely by free surfaces. A drop may form when liquid accumulates at the lower end of a tube or other surface boundary, producing a hanging drop called a pendant drop.

droplets

This instance is a plurality of droplet

fault

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In geology, a fault is a planar fracture or discontinuity in a volume of rock, across which there has been significant displacement as a result of rock-mass movement. Large faults within the Earth's crust result from the action of plate tectonic forces, with the largest forming the boundaries between the plates, such as subduction zones or transform faults.

floe

floes

This instance is a plurality of floe

grain

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
Grain size (or particle size) is the diameter of individual grains of sediment, or the lithified particles in clastic rocks. The term may also be applied to other granular materials.

grains

This instance is a plurality of grain

hole

ion

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
An ion () is an atom or molecule that has a net electrical charge. Since the charge of the electron (considered negative by convention) is equal and opposite to that of the proton (considered positive by convention), the net charge of an ion is non-zero due to its total number of electrons being unequal to its total number of protons.

ions

This instance is a plurality of ion

isomer

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In chemistry, isomers are ions or molecules with identical formulas but distinct structures. Isomers do not necessarily share similar properties.

isomers

This instance is a plurality of isomer

isotope

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
Isotopes are variants of a particular chemical element which differ in neutron number, and consequently in nucleon number. All isotopes of a given element have the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons in each atom.The term isotope is formed from the Greek roots isos (ἴσος "equal") and topos (τόπος "place"), meaning "the same place"; thus, the meaning behind the name is that different isotopes of a single element occupy the same position on the periodic table.

isotopes

This instance is a plurality of isotope

This instance has the attribute exterior

link~interior

This instance is a narrower concept derived from link

This instance has the attribute interior

macropores

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In soil, macropores are defined as cavities that are larger than 75 μm. Functionally, pores of this size host preferential soil solution flow and rapid transport of solutes and colloids.

This instance is a plurality of mat

molecule

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
A molecule is an electrically neutral group of two or more atoms held together by chemical bonds. Molecules are distinguished from ions by their lack of electrical charge.

molecules

This instance is a plurality of molecule

network

particle

Alternative labels for this instance are corpuscule.

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In the physical sciences, a particle (or corpuscule in older texts) is a small localized object to which can be ascribed several physical or chemical properties such as volume, density or mass. They vary greatly in size or quantity, from subatomic particles like the electron, to microscopic particles like atoms and molecules, to macroscopic particles like powders and other granular materials.

particles

This instance is a plurality of particle

particulate

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
Atmospheric aerosol particles – also known as atmospheric particulate matter, particulate matter (PM), particulates, or suspended particulate matter (SPM) – are microscopic solid or liquid matter suspended in the atmosphere of Earth. The term aerosol commonly refers to the particulate/air mixture, as opposed to the particulate matter alone.

platform

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
Platform may refer to:

plume

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In hydrodynamics, a plume is a column of one fluid moving through another. Several effects control the motion of the fluid, including momentum (inertia), diffusion and buoyancy (density differences).

pool

pore

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
The pore space of soil contains the liquid and gas phases of soil, i.e., everything but the solid phase that contains mainly minerals of varying sizes as well as organic compounds. In order to understand porosity better a series of equations have been used to express the quantitative interactions between the three phases of soil.

pores

This instance is a plurality of pore

radical

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In chemistry, a radical is an atom, molecule, or ion that has an unpaired valence electron. With some exceptions, these unpaired electrons make radicals highly chemically reactive.

region

state

This instance is a narrower concept derived from region

sample

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
In general, a sample is a limited quantity of something which is intended to be similar to and represent a larger amount of that thing(s). The things could be countable objects such as individual items available as units for sale, or an uncountable material.

void

This instance has a related Wikipedia page. Short extract:
A void is a pore that remains unfilled with polymer and fibers in a composite material. Voids are typically the result of poor manufacturing of the material and are generally deemed undesirable.
