  • Benthic zone

    The marine life zone that includes any seabottom surface regardless of its distance from shore.

  • Capacity

    The total amount of sediment a stream is able to transport.

  • Coast

    A strip of land that extends inland from the coastline as far as ocean-related features can be found.

  • Constellation

    An apparent group of stars originally named for mythical characters. The sky is presently divided into 88 constellations.

  • Cosmology

    The study of the universe.

  • Crevasse

  • Glaze

    A coating of ice on objects formed when supercooled rain freezes on contact.

    A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.

  • Nebula

    A cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust.

  • Settling velocity

    The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.

  • Thermohaline circulation

    Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.

  • Tombolo
