A large wedge-shaped mass of sediment that accumulates in subduction zones. Here, sediment is scraped from the subducting oceanic plate and accreted to the overriding crustal block.
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.
The cutting-off of the light of one celestial body by another passing in front of it.
A steep-sided inlet of the sea formed when a glacial trough was partially submerged.
The science that examines Earth, its form and composition, and the changes it has undergone and is undergoing.
The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.
Dust and gases found between stars.
Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.
A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.
Localized convective lifting
Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.
An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.
A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.
The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.
A magnetic field that is the same as that which exists at present.
Layers of sediments are generally deposited in a horizontal or nearly horizontal position.
A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.
The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.
A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.
Wind-generated waves that have moved into an area of weaker winds or calm.
