comment Should I use a hyphen in the term “in(-)situ visualization”?
This is true, the dictionaries list in situ (without a hyphen) as an adjective/adverb, also the American ones. But still, as Google Scholar and the COCA corpus confirm, it is frequently used with a hyphen in front of nouns for established terms in scientific language. So, why? Is there any rule that applies or is it just an error? I did not find the answer in the dictionary.

comment Difference between “mark” and “marker”
According to dictionary.com a "mark" is a "a visible impression or trace on something" and "marker" is "something used as a mark or indication". That doesn't help either.
