A type of lava flow that has a jagged, blocky surface.
A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.
The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.
Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.
Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.
Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.
Hot spot track
Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.
See Terrestrial planets.
Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.
The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.
A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.
A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.
A curved lake produced when a stream cuts off a meander.
A vertical section through a soil showing its succession of horizons and the underlying parent material.
One of the three main categories of meteorites. Such meteorites are composed largely of silicate minerals with inclusions of other minerals.

In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.
A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.
A common term for a desert stream course that is typically dry except for brief periods immediately following a rain.
Zone of accumulation
The part of a glacier characterized by snow accumulation and ice formation. Its outer limit is the snowline.
