A massive star that has collapsed to such a small volume that its gravity prevents the escape of all radiation.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
A sedimentary rock composed of rounded, gravel-size particles.
The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.
The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.
A wind, usually above a height of 600 meters (2,000 feet), that blows parallel to the isobars.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
The study of minerals.
The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.
An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.
The amount of organic matter synthesized by organisms from inorganic substances through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis within a given volume of water or habitat in a unit of time.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.
A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.
Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.
A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.
The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.
