scalloping


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

scal·lop·ing

(skal'ŏp-ing),
A series of indentations or erosions on a normally smooth margin of a structure.
Gastroenterology A descriptive term for the appearance of Candida oesophagitis, where there are irregular serrations, seen by a barium swallow
Imaging—bone, digits A descriptive term for a semilunar erosion at the ulnar aspect of the distal radius, seen in patients with advanced rheumatoid arthritis and caused by spontaneous rupture of the digital extensors; the ‘scallop’ is often more prominent, as it may be rimmed by an osteosclerotic margin
Imaging—bone, vertebrae A descriptive term for a gouged-edge appearance of vertebrae in certain pathological conditions; when the scalloping is anterior, it may be due to pressure from an aneurysm. Posterior scalloping is associated with spinal tumours, neurofibromatosis or communicating hydrocephalus
Imaging—chest A descriptive term for the tethering of the visceral to parietal pleura, seen in pneumothorax which develops 'over' prior lung disease
Pathology A descriptive term for the serration of colloid adjacent to the epithelial cells in thyroid acini, seen by low-power light microscopy of Hashimoto’s disease

On opening day of scalloping seasons, you'll likely see hundreds of boats departing port and gathering over scallop-infested flats that have been scouted by locals in the weeks leading up to the harvest.
In [15], the authors extended their work to address scalloping artifacts using Amazon forests, and proposed an improved version of descalloping method of [11] by introducing a new normalization scheme that suppresses the deviation of power due to shift in estimated antenna pattern.
[16] proposed a descalloping filter based on post-processing modification of spectrum of ScanSAR image, in which the scalloping related peaks in the ScanSAR image spectrum are identified.
In this paper, we propose a novel technique for removal of scalloping and inter-scan banding.
Afterward, sloops were phased out of scalloping, but catboats continued to dredge under sail into the 1920's.
Skiffs (wooden rowboats), 12-15 ft (3.7-4.6 m) long, began to replace catboats in the bay scalloping fleets when outboard motors became available in the late 1930's.
Nantucket bay scalloping began on a larger scale using catboats under sail in the late fall of 1879 (Fig.
In recent decades, the Nantucket bay scalloping fleet has varied in size, following the trend in scallop abundances.

In a nutshell (or a scallop shell, for that matter), scalloping isn't difficult, but there are a few basic things to know before you head out searching for them this summer.
