Full solutions for Biology | 8th Edition
A strong attractive force that exists between atoms in a substance. It involves the transfer or sharing of electrons that allows each atom to attain a full valence shell.
A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.
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.
Buoyant plumes of hot, ashladen gases that can extend thousands of meters into the atmosphere.
A texture of metamorphic rocks that gives the rock a layered appearance.
A term used to describe the texture of certain igneous rocks, such as obsidian, that contain no crystals.
The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.
A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.
Hot spot track
Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.
A theory that is held with a very high degree of confidence and is comprehensive in scope.
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.
The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.
The downward slipping of a mass of rock or unconsolidated material moving as a unit along a curved surface.
The condition of water droplets that remain in the liquid state at temperatures well below 0° C.
By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds between 61 and 119 kilometers (38 and 74 miles) per hour.
Air that does not resist vertical displacement. If it is lifted, its temperature will not cool as rapidly as the surrounding environment, so it will continue to rise on its own.
A relatively narrow body of stratified drift deposited on a valley floor by meltwater streams that issue from a valley glacier.
A cobble or pebble polished and shaped by the sandblasting effect of wind.
An opening bored into the zone of saturation.
