Difference between tantrum and 'meltdown'

Can you lovely folk explain to me the difference between a bad tantrum and a meltdown?

My lovely (adopted) DD age 10 has in the last 6 months started having explosions over trivial things that she struggles to calm herself down from lasting up to an hour. Up until 6 months ago she was usually calm and well behaved and any upset could be coaxed out in 5 minutes or so.

I don't know how concerned to be.
