A Gamma radiation is a short-wavelength electromagnetic radiation of nuclear origin, with energies between 10 keV to 9 MeV.

The term "Gas" may refer to any one of the following:

  • one of the four main physical states of matter (along with solid, liquid and plasma)

The Geographical Information System (GIS) is a collection of computer hardware, software, and physical data designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, and display habitat referenced data.

A Global Climate Change could result in sea level rises, changes to patterns of precipitation, increased variability in the weather, and a variety of other consequences.

A Global radiation is Total solar radiant Energy impinging on a surface, equal to the sum of direct and diffuse radiation.

The global warming describes the increase in the average temperature of the earth's surface.

A Golden Carrot is an incentive program that is designed to transform the market to produce much greater Energy efficiency. The term is a trademark of the Consortium for Energy Efficiency .

The Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) are the established guidelines to ensure reporting of high quality and reliable data to support the research or marketing efforts for experimentation or product manufacturing processes regulated by governmental agencies; see 40 CFR Part 160, 40 CFR Part 792, and 21 CFR Part 58.
