A deep crack in the brittle surface of a glacier.
The yearly path of the Sun plotted against the background of stars.
The name given to the periodic warming of the ocean that occurs in the central and eastern Pacific. A major El Niño episode can cause extreme weather in many parts of the world.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
The point where a lens or mirror causes light rays to converge.
The mechanical breakup of rock caused by the expansion of freezing water in cracks and crevices.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.
A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.
A chemical bond present in all metals that may be characterized as an extreme type of electron sharing in which the electrons move freely from atom to atom.
Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.
Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.
Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.
A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.
Lower limit of perennial snow.
An instrument for directly viewing the spectrum of a light source.
Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.
