- Convection, heat transfer through a liquid or gas
- Conduction, heat transfer through a solid
- Endothermic, a reaction that uses heat energy
- Exothermic, a reaction that gives off heat energy
- Radiation, heat transfer from a light source
- Nuclear reaction, process that makes alpha particles from hydrogen nuclei as a result of high temperatures and pressures; this produces the sun's energy in its core

An algal bloom is an accumulation of algae (typically microscopic) or a
rapid increase in their amount in a body of water. Algal blooms may occur in
freshwater as well as salt water. Algal blooms are often caused by
