A mixture of many discrete gases, of which nitrogen and oxygen are most abundant, in which varying quantities of tiny solid and liquid particles are suspended.
An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.
The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.
A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.
The land area that contributes water to a stream.
Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.
A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.
The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.
The overtaking of one front by another.
A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.
Perched water table
A localized zone of saturation above the main water table created by an impermeable layer (aquiclude).
The volume of open spaces in rock or soil.
A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.
An area where snow persists yearround.
A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.
The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.
A tributary that flows parallel to the main stream because a natural levee is present.
