Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.
A narrow knifelike ridge separating two adjacent glaciated valleys.
Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.
A feature found in caves that is formed when a stalactite and stalagmite join.
The depression at the summit of a volcano, or that which is produced by a meteorite impact.
A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.
A group of interrelated food chains.
A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.
Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.
Longitudinal (seif dunes)
Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
Magnetic time scale
A scale that shows the ages of magnetic reversals and is based on the polarity of lava flows of various ages.
A cloud occupying the height range from 2,000 to 6,000 meters.
Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.
An end moraine formed as the ice front stagnated during glacial retreat.
An eclipse of the Sun.
Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.
Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.
The color of a mineral in powdered form.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.
A term applied to igneous rocks that contain small cavities called vesicles, which are formed when gases escape from lava.
