  • Arid

    See Desert.

  • Biomass

    The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.

  • Continental slope

    The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.

  • Daily mean

    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.

  • Desert

    One of the two types of dry climate; the driest of the dry climates.

  • Ebb current

    The movement of a tidal current away from the shore.

  • End moraine

    A ridge of till marking a former position of the front of a glacier.

  • Evaporation

    The process of converting a liquid to a gas.

  • Maritime (m) air mass

    An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.

  • Melting

    The change of state from a solid to a liquid.

  • Meteorite

    Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.

  • Oceanic zone

    The marine-life zone beyond the continental shelf.

  • Polar (P) air mass

    A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.

  • Radiocarbon (carbon-14)

    The radioactive isotope of carbon, which is produced continuously in the atmosphere and is used in dating events from the very recent geologic past (the last few tens of thousands of years).

  • Rock-forming minerals

    The minerals that make up most of the rocks of Earth’s crust.

  • Saturation

    The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.

  • Spring equinox

    The equinox that occurs on March 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on September 21–23 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Steppe

    One of the two types of dry climate. A marginal and more humid variant of the desert that separates it from bordering humid climates.

  • Tarn

    A small lake in a cirque.

  • Upslope fog

    Fog created when air moves up a slope and cools adiabatically.
