A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.
The marine life zone that includes any seabottom surface regardless of its distance from shore.
The concept that Earth was shaped by catastrophic events of a short-term nature.
An igneous rock texture in which the crystals are roughly equal in size and large enough so that individual minerals can be identified with the unaided eye.
A term used to describe intrusive igneous masses that form parallel to the bedding of the surrounding rock.
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.
That portion of a stream’s load carried in solution.
A substance that cannot be decomposed into simpler substances by ordinary chemical or physical means.
The largest time unit on the geologic time scale, next in order of magnitude above era.
The point where a lens or mirror causes light rays to converge.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.
Oceanic ridge system
A continuous elevated zone on the floor of all the major ocean basins and varying in width from 500 to 5,000 kilometers (300–3,000 miles). The rifts at the crests of ridges represent divergent plate boundaries.
Two or more radio telescopes that combine their signals to achieve the resolving power of a larger telescope.
A dry area on the lee side of a mountain range. Many middle-latitude deserts are of this type.
The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.
An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.
A solid form of precipitation produced by sublimination of water vapor.
Temporary (local) base level
The level of a lake, resistant rock layer, or any other base level that stands above sea level.
Ultimate base level
Sea level; the lowest level to which stream erosion could lower the land.
