A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
Deformation that involves the fracturing of rock. Associated with rocks near the surface.
The gently sloping submerged portion of the continental margin, extending from the shoreline to the continental slope.
A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.
Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.
A fault in which the movement is parallel to the dip of the fault.
A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.
An organism whose genetic material is enclosed in a nucleus; plants, animals, and fungi are eukaryotes.
The process of converting a liquid to a gas.
A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.
A curved lake produced when a stream cuts off a meander.
The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.
A chain of thermonuclear reactions by which nuclei of hydrogen are built up into nuclei of helium.
The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.
The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.
A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.
The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere.
