cryofixation (s) (noun), cryofixations (pl)
Holding, suturing, or fastening in a position with a process for microscopy that is carried out at low temperatures during surgery to improve the quality of holding body parts together: Cryofixation is often done at very low temperatures and fast coolings are used to prevent formation of ice crystals.

Cooling rates of 10,000 degrees per minute may be used in cryofixations and liquid nitrogen or even liquid helium temperatures are utilized and it is not necessary to include any chemical treatments.

cryomation
A commercially coined term given to a procedure that instead of being burned in an incinerator and then ground to ashes in a cremulator, the human body is frozen using liquid nitrogen at 196 degrees Celsius until the body is brittle.

Such a process drives out all of the water, and the cadaver is then subjected to a process which breaks it up into granules or fragments, which can then be returned in the normal way to the family for either burial or in an urn.

The process ensures that the final powder is sterile and 100% free of all bacteria and viruses. An accelerated composting process further reduces the mass and can itself, generate and sustain life; that is, a flower or tree can be planted with the remains and so complete the "circle of life" which is preferred by many religions.

Compared to traditional burials, there is much less space necessary which is an important issue for many overcrowded urbanized-burial cemeteries. If the remains are buried after cryomation, then this could return to loam in the ground in 6-12 months. In such situations, the family could have one plot that would be a third of the traditional size which could be utilized by the family for many generations in the future.

cryoplanation
Land erosion that results from processes associated with intensive frost action.
cryoprecipitation (s) (noun), cryoprecipitations (pl)
The process of forming a solid that settles from a solution: " The cryoprecipitation that forms when plasma is frozen and then thawed; which is especially rich in fibronectin (secreted proteins) and a blood clotting factor, that when acting together can form a blood clot shortly after platelets have broken at the site of the wound."
cryopreservation, cryopreserve
1. Maintenance of the viability of excised tissues or organs at extremely low temperatures.
2. The process of storing semen, ova, corneas, embryos, bone marrow, or body tissue at extremely low temperatures for future use.
cryoturbation (s) (noun), cryoturbations (pl)
Disturbance of the soil surface by the action of freezing or of alternate freezing and thawing.
cultivation (s) (noun), cultivations (pl)
1. In agriculture, the production of food by preparing the land to grow crops.
2. Socialization through training and education.
3. A highly developed state of perfection; having a flawless or impeccable quality.
cumulation (s) (noun), cumulations (pl)
cuticularization
The formation, or covering, of internal and external surfaces of the body.
cutification
The process of forming skin.
cutinization
The conversion of cell walls into a material which repels water; such as, cork.
cutization
The process by which exposed mucous membranes are transformed into skin.
cybernation (s) (noun), cybernations (pl)
The process of controlling manufacturing equipment with advanced technology; usually, involving electronic hardware: Cybernations are being used in the automatic determinations of industrial processes with the use of computers so that the supervised systems respond to proper operating conditions or desired results and that they also adjust the procedures when they are needed in order to be more efficient.
daycation
A day trip or other short vacation that does not require an overnight stay; such as, not taking a long flight or driving some distance, nor staying in hotels, motels, or other temporary residences.
