The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.
Two stars revolving around a common center of mass under their mutual gravitational attraction.
Cone of depression
A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.
A fault in which the movement is parallel to the dip of the fault.
Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.
Dark, thin streaks that appear across the bright solar disk.
Small earthquakes that often precede a major earthquake.
Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.
The process, generally cementation and/or compaction, of converting sediments to solid rock.
Magnetic time scale
A scale that shows the ages of magnetic reversals and is based on the polarity of lava flows of various ages.
Open ocean of any depth. Animals in this zone swim or float freely.
A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom.
A mechanism that may contribute to plate motion. It involves the oceanic lithosphere sliding down the oceanic ridge under the pull of gravity.
