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.
The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.
A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.
Cone of depression
A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.
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.
The land area that contributes water to a stream.
The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.
The processes that collectively result in the formation of mountains.
A volcanic cone that forms on the flank of a larger volcano.
The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.
An igneous rock of ultramafic composition thought to be abundant in the upper mantle.
The region of the Sun that radiates energy to space. The visible surface of the Sun.
The ratio of the air’s watervapor content to its water-vapor capacity.
An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.
The icicle-like structure that hangs from the ceiling of a cavern.
A situation in which the surface position of a front does not move; the flow on either side of such a boundary is nearly parallel to the position of the front.
Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.
The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.
The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.
adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
