The study of the universe.
The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.
Detrital sedimentary rock
Rock formed from the accumulation of material that originated and was transported in the form of solid particles derived from both mechanical and chemical weathering.
Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.
A nearshore current that flows parallel to the shore.
The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.
The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.
Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.
A naturally occurring concentration of one or more metallic minerals that can be extracted economically.
See Jovian planet.
The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.
Primary (P) wave
A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.
A collapsing cloud of gas and dust destined to become a star.
A model that illustrates the origin of the three basic rock types and the interrelatedness of Earth materials and processes.
The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.
The idea that the rifting and dispersal of one supercontinent is followed by a long period during which the fragments gradually reassemble into a new supercontinent.
Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.
The sound emitted by rapidly expanding gases along the channel of lightning discharge.
A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.
A common term for a desert stream course that is typically dry except for brief periods immediately following a rain.
