Active continental margin
Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.
A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.
A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.
A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.
An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.
Humid subtropical climate
A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.
Dust and gases found between stars.
Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.
Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.
A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.
The boundary between the mesosphere and the thermosphere.
The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.
Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.
A sudden and tremendous eruption in the solar chromosphere.
The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.
The boundary between the stratosphere and the mesosphere.
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 color of a mineral in powdered form.
The end moraine marking the farthest advance of a glacier.
