See Intermediate composition.
A narrow knifelike ridge separating two adjacent glaciated valleys.
A term used to describe intrusive igneous masses that form parallel to the bedding of the surrounding rock.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.
The time when the vertical rays of the Sun are striking the equator. The length of daylight and darkness is equal at all latitudes at equinox.
Scratches and grooves on bedrock caused by glacial abrasion.
A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.
An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.
Relatively small fragments of continental crust that may lie above sea level, such as the island of Madagascar, or be submerged, as exemplified by the Campbell Plateau located near New Zealand.
The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.
The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.
The small heavy core of an atom that contains all of its positive charge and most of its mass.
The shape of these dunes resembles barchans, except their tips point into the wind; they often form along coasts that have strong onshore winds, abundant sand, and vegetation that partly covers the sand.
A variable star that pulsates in size and luminosity.
Rock formed from the weathered products of preexisting rocks that have been transported, deposited, and lithified.
A broad, gently sloping volcano built from fluid basaltic lavas.
See Composite cone.
The sound emitted by rapidly expanding gases along the channel of lightning discharge.
