See Dry climate.
An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.
A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.
The movement of a tidal current away from the shore.
The name given to the periodic warming of the ocean that occurs in the central and eastern Pacific. A major El Niño episode can cause extreme weather in many parts of the world.
Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.
A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.
A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.
A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.
Longitudinal (seif dunes)
Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
The luminous phenomenon observed when a meteoroid enters Earth’s atmosphere and burns up; popularly called a “shooting star.”
The material upon which a soil develops.
The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.
A vertical conduit through which magmatic materials have passed.
Polar (P) air mass
A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.
As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.
Positive feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
A common term for a desert stream course that is typically dry except for brief periods immediately following a rain.
Air flowing horizontally with respect to Earth’s surface.
