    The steepest angle at which loose material remains stationary without sliding downslope.

  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Bituminous

    The most common form of coal, often called soft, black coal.

  • Deflation

    The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.

  • Density

    Mass per unit volume of a substance, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter

  • Disconformity

    A type of unconformity in which the beds above and below are parallel.

  • Humidity

    A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.

  • Impact craters

    Depressions that are the result of collisions with bodies such as asteroids and comets.

  • Kuiper belt

  • Lunar highlands

    See Terrae.

  • Mean solar day

    The average time between two passages of the Sun across the local celestial meridian.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Planetesimal

  • Pressure gradient

    The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.

  • Proton

    A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Rock

    A consolidated mixture of minerals.

  • Scattering

    The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.

  • Tornado watch

    A warning issued for areas of about 65,000 square kilometers (25,000 square miles), indicating that conditions are such that tornadoes may develop; it is intended to alert people to the possibility of tornadoes.

  • Trench

    An elongated depression in the seafloor produced by bending of oceanic crust during subduction.
