Jetsam: The legal term for goods or equipment thrown overboard from a ship at sea, differing from flotsam in that the goods are deliberately thrown overboard from a ship, for instance to lighten her if she is in danger, while flotsam covers goods accidentally lost overboard or which may float up from the hull of a wrecked ship. In the strict and original legal sense, jetsam is the place where such goods are thrown overboard and not necessarily the goods themselves, and also implies total abandonment of such goods to a later finder.
