Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.
A strong attractive force that exists between atoms in a substance. It involves the transfer or sharing of electrons that allows each atom to attain a full valence shell.
Cosmological red shift
Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.
The yearly path of the Sun plotted against the background of stars.

The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.
Depressions that are the result of collisions with bodies such as asteroids and comets.
A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.
A wave-cut platform that has been exposed above sea level.
The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.
The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.
A theory that is held with a very high degree of confidence and is comprehensive in scope.
A part of a stream channel in which the water suddenly begins flowing more swiftly and turbulently because of an abrupt steepening of the gradient.
A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.
The channel, valley floor, and sloping valley walls of a stream.
Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.
