Andean-type plate margin
Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.
Zone of inclined seismic activity that extends from a trench downward into the asthenosphere.
The concept that Earth was shaped by catastrophic events of a short-term nature.
A theory of raindrop formation in warm clouds (above 0° C) in which large cloud droplets (giants) collide and join together with smaller droplets to form a raindrop. Opposite electrical charges may bind the cloud droplets together.
Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.
Cone of depression
A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.
That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.
Earth system science
An interdisciplinary study that seeks to examine Earth as a system composed of numerous interacting parts or subsystems.
Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.
The time required for one-half of the atoms of a radioactive substance to decay.
The area where land and sea meet and overlap; the zone between high and low tides.
The Jupiter-like planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These planets have relatively low densities.
A local wind blowing from land toward the water during the night in coastal areas.
A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.
The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.
Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.
The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.
One of three basic cloud forms; also, the name given one of the flow clouds. They are sheets or layers that cover much or all of the sky
The study of the large-scale processes that collectively deform Earth’s crust.
Seafloor sediments derived from terrestrial weathering and erosion.
