Angle of repose
The steepest angle at which loose material remains stationary without sliding downslope.
Big bang theory
The theory that proposes that the universe originated as a single mass, which subsequently exploded.
A strip of land that extends inland from the coastline as far as ocean-related features can be found.
One of three basic cloud forms; also the name given one of the clouds of vertical development. Cumulus are billowy individual cloud masses that often have flat bases.
See Absorption spectrum.
Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.
Natural steam used for power generation.
Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.
The appearance or quality of light reflected from the surface of a mineral.
Lowest tidal range, occurring near the times of the first- and third-quarter phases of the Moon.
The region of the Sun that radiates energy to space. The visible surface of the Sun.
The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.
The nature of the change in atmospheric pressure over the past several hours. It can be a useful aid in short range weather prediction.
Lower limit of perennial snow.
Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.
The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.
The force per unit area acting on any surface within a solid.
The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.
