  • Annual temperature range

    The difference between the highest and lowest monthly temperature means.

  • Astronomical theory

    A theory of climatic change first developed by Yugoslavian astronomer Milutin Milankovitch. It is based on changes in the shape of Earth’s orbit, variations in the obliquity of Earth’s axis, and the wobbling of Earth’s axis.

  • Crystal form

    See Habit.

  • Ductile deformation

    A type of solid state flow that produces a change in the size and shape of a rock body without fracturing. Occurs at depths where temperatures and confining pressures are high.

  • Geothermal gradient

    The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.

  • Igneous rock

    A rock formed by the crystallization of molten magma.

  • Lithification

    The process, generally cementation and/or compaction, of converting sediments to solid rock.

  • Meander

  • Pipe

    A vertical conduit through which magmatic materials have passed.

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Spheroidal weathering

  • Stratified drift

  • Terrestrial planets

    Any of the Earth-like planets, including Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth.

  • Turbidity current

    A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.
