A glacier confined to a mountain valley, which in most instances had previously been a stream valley.
A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.
That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.
A layer of coarse pebbles and gravel created when wind removed the finer material.
A coast where land that was formerly below sea level has been exposed either because of crustal uplift or a drop in sea level or both.
Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.
A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.
A bent rock layer or series of layers that were originally horizontal and subsequently deformed.
A group of interrelated food chains.
A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.
The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.
The boundary between the mesosphere and the thermosphere.
Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.
A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.
Positive feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.
A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.
A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.
Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.
The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.
