  • Deep-ocean basin

    The portion of seafloor that lies between the continental margin and the oceanic ridge system. This region comprises almost 30 percent of Earth’s surface.

  • Desalination

    The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.

  • Gyre

    The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.

  • Hot spot track

    Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.

  • Interstellar matter

    Dust and gases found between stars.

  • Original horizontality

    Layers of sediments are generally deposited in a horizontal or nearly horizontal position.

  • Parallax

    The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.

  • pH scale

    A common measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, it is a logarithmic scale ranging from 0 to 14. A value of 7 denotes a neutral solution, values below 7 indicate greater acidity, and numbers above 7 indicate greater alkalinity.

  • Piedmont glacier

    A glacier that forms when one or more valley glaciers emerge from the confining walls of mountain valleys and spread out to create a broad sheet in the lowlands at the base of the mountains.

  • Regolith

    The layer of rock and mineral fragments that nearly everywhere covers Earth’s surface.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Spicule

    A narrow jet of rising material in the solar chromosphere.

    Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.

  • Tropic of Capricorn

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees south latitude, marking the southern limit of the Sun’s verticalrays.

  • Variable stars

    Red giants that overshoot equilibrium, then alternately expand and contract.
