There actually exists a process known as Lake Turnover and an event known as Lake Overturn (Limnic Eruption). The first, known as lake turnover occurs on many large and/or deep bodies of water. As air temperatures drop so does the water temperature of the upper layers of a body of water. As these upper layers cool they become denser and heavier. Eventually they become cold enough and heavy enough to the point they begin to sink. As this heavy dense layer sinks it displaces the water at the lake bottom forcing the lower layers to the surface. It is the unique properties of the water molecule which causes water to contract down to 40 degrees F and then to begin expanding at 39 degrees F to 32 degrees F that makes this process possible without freezing the lake through. The second, known as lake overturn is also known as limnic eruption and, by all accounts, is much more rare and can be deadly. Limnic eruption occurs when a layer of carbon dioxide rich water at the bottom of a deep body of water is displaced or disturbed and rises rapidly and erupts from the surface releasing the gas into the atmosphere. These eruptions have been identified as the cause of mass death events in villages at Lake Nyos in Cameroon, Africa when these areas were overcome with the heavier-than-air carbon dioxide resulting in the suffocation of those close to the ground or unable to flee. As currently understood, carbon dioxide rich springs seep into the lake bottom and over time a thick layer of this carbon dioxide builds up in the lower portion of the lake. Pressure from the upper layers of water keeps the gases from escaping to the surface similar to how the cap on a bottle of soda water keeps the gases from escaping. This gaseous layer continues to build until it is displaced, perhaps by vulcanism, seismic activity or landslides. When any of these events occur and bring the carbon dioxide rich bottom lake layer to the top of the lake you have what is know as lake turnover.

Revenue employee turnover: the ratio of the number of workers that had to be replaced in a given time period to the average number of workers
By the time fall has arrived, lakes have become thermally stratified. This means that cold water is found at the bottom, warm water is found at the top and a temp…erature gradient in between. Dead planktonic organisms, sediments, and other nutrients have become abundant near the surface. As cool winds prevail and the sun is less intense during fall, the surface waters (or epilimnion) begin to cool and become more dense. These cooler, more dense waters begin to sink past the thermocline to the bottom waters or the hypolimnion and the once stratified lake has become a more uniform temperature due to mixing. When the cool water sank during this mixing, it brought with it the nutrients from the epilimnion which provides for benthic organisms.-
Lake turnover can either improve or worsen the condition of the water. If the new water comes from a fresh, clean source, then the supply of nutrients in the water would b…e renewed.

Asset Turnover is a financial ratio that measures the efficiency of a company's use of its assets in generating revenue or income for the company.

Congressional turnover is the percentage of congressmen that are removed from their position after their term is up. For example early in our nation's history congressiona…l turnover was high because the majority of people serving in the house and senate were not re-elected after just a few terms. Today congressmen will stay in power for many terms and make a career out of their tenure in congess. Meaning today there is a very low Congressional Turnover.

What Does Receivables Turnover Ratio Mean? An accounting measure used to quantify a firm's effectiveness in extending credit as well as collecting debts. The receivables turn…over ratio is an activity ratio, measuring how efficiently a firm uses its assets. Some companies' reports will only show sales - this can affect the ratio depending on the size of cash sales. Investopedia explains Receivables Turnover Ratio By maintaining accounts receivable, firms are indirectly extending interest-free loans to their clients. A high ratio implies either that a company operates on a cash basis or that its extension of credit and collection of accounts receivable is efficient. A low ratio implies the company should re-assess its credit policies in order to ensure the timely collection of imparted credit that is not earning interest for the firm. From Riem Samnang
When the other team steals the ball because you picked it up and hesitated to shoot or pass it.
It's when a team automatically gives possession to the other team. Like double dribbling, traveling, over and back, carrying, charge, and things like that.
