A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.
A span on the geologic time scale beginning about 65 million years ago following the Mesozoic era.
The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.
That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.
The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.
Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.
The variation in the rate and degree of weathering caused by such factors as mineral makeup, degree of jointing, and climate.
A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.
An elongated, uplifted block of crust bounded by faults.
The movement of surface water into rock or soil through cracks and pore spaces.
A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.
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.
Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.
The nature of the change in atmospheric pressure over the past several hours. It can be a useful aid in short range weather prediction.
A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.
The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.
Frozen or semifrozen rain formed when raindrops freeze as they pass through a layer of cold air.
A sudden and tremendous eruption in the solar chromosphere.
A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.
