An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.
The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.
A description of aggregate weather conditions; the sum of all statistical weather information that helps describe a place or region.
A measure of the largest particle a stream can transport; a factor dependent on velocity.
A sudden brightening of an area on the Sun.
Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.
A mountain valley that has been widened, deepened, and straightened by a glacier.
A term found on some versions of the geologic time scale. It refers to the earliest interval (eon) of Earth history, and ended 4 billion years ago.
Humid continental climate
A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.
Dust and gases found between stars.
The process, generally cementation and/or compaction, of converting sediments to solid rock.

Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
The scientific study of the atmosphere and atmospheric phenomena; the study of weather and climate.
A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.
The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.
