Main article deposit (bank)

  • In politics, a deposit is a cash bond which must be lodged by electoral candidates with the electoral authorities, to be returned if they achieve a specified measure of success in the election and otherwise forfeit. In British Parliamentary elections the deposit is 500 and is returned to candidates achieving 5% of the vote. (Until October 1985 the qualification was 12.5% of the votes).

  • In archaeology, a deposit is any layer context which has been lain down rather than cut. It is analogous to the geological stratum. Artefacts, ecofacts and structures are not considered deposits although they are found within them. Deposits can be natural or manmade. Natural deposits are usually waterlain or windblown whilst archaeological deposits are the natural by-product of activity and are created through formation processes.

Heavy Organics Deposition and Fouling in Petroleum Fluids (962 words)
The kind and amount of depositions of heavy organics from petroleum fluids vary depending on the hydrocarbons present in oil and the relative amounts of each family of heavy organics.
Some of the heavy organics (specially asphaltenes) will separate from the oil phase into an aggregate (large particles) and then will remain suspended in oil by some peptizing agents, like resins, which will be adsorbed on their surface and keeping them afloat as demonstrated by Figure 3.
The factors influencing this effect are the electrical and thermal characteristics of the conduit, flow regime, flowing oil properties, characteristics of the polar heavy organics and colloidal particles, and blending of the oil.
"Lockerbie Trial Document: Susan Lindauer Deposition" (4 December 1998) (1868 words)
While Dr. Fuisz is still unable to comment on this matter because of the gag order, MEIB has obtained a copy of a formal deposition filed by Lindauer in 1998 in which she recounts this conversation in detail.
This deposition (see below) has been submitted to the court in which two Libyan suspects are currently on trial and to U.N. officials, who have attempted to persuade the Clinton administration to lift the gag order on Dr. Fuisz.
She has agreed to publish her email address, slndau@aol.com, along with this deposition so that journalists, researchers and others interested in learning more about this issue can contact her.
