The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.
The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.
A term used to describe plutons that cut across existing rock structures, such as bedding planes.
A ridge of till marking a former position of the front of a glacier.
A compositional group of igneous rocks that indicates a rock is composed almost entirely of light-colored silicates.
