A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.
Common term for sand and gravel deposits in a stream channel.
See Pressure tendency.
The measurement of ocean depths and the charting of the shape or topography of the ocean floor.
The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1° C.
Diurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.
A texture of metamorphic rocks that gives the rock a layered appearance.
Igneous activity that occurs within a tectonic plate away from plate boundaries.
A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.
The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.
Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.
Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.
A strong narrow surface or nearsurface current of short duration and high speed flowing seaward through the breaker zone at nearly right angles to the shore. It represents the return to the ocean of water that has been piled up on the shore by incoming waves.
A solid form of precipitation produced by sublimination of water vapor.
An eclipse of the Sun.
A situation in which the surface position of a front does not move; the flow on either side of such a boundary is nearly parallel to the position of the front.
The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.
A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
Temporary (local) base level
The level of a lake, resistant rock layer, or any other base level that stands above sea level.
A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.
