An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.
A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.
Dry-summer subtropical climate
A climate located on the west sides of continents between latitudes 30° and 45°. It is the only humid climate with a strong winter precipitation maximum.
Celestial bodies that orbit stars, massive enough to be spherical but have not cleared their neighboring regions of planetesimals.
The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.
A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.
Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.
A phenomenon, sometimes associated with earthquakes, in which soils and other unconsolidated materials containing abundant water are turned into a fluid-like mass that is not capable of supporting buildings.
Mineral groups that lack silicas in their structures and account for less than 10 percent of Earth’s crust.
Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.
The marine-life zone beyond the continental shelf.
A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.
Stars poor in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively old stars found in the halo, globular clusters, or nuclear bulge.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.
The procedure of calculating the absolute ages of rocks and minerals that contain radioactive isotopes.
A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.
The study of spectra.
A very large star of high luminosity.
