  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Laccolith

  • Positive feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
