The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.
Clouds of vertical development
A cloud that has its base in the low-height range but extends upward into the middle or high altitudes.
A circulation pattern characterized by a light wind blowing into a city from the surrounding countryside. It is best developed on clear and otherwise calm nights when the urban heat island is most pronounced.
The depression at the summit of a volcano, or that which is produced by a meteorite impact.
The land area that contributes water to a stream.
Igneous activity that occurs outside the crust.
An eruption in which lava is extruded from narrow fractures or cracks in the crust.
A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.
Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.
A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.
The total amount of energy released during an earthquake.
The elevated landforms that parallel some streams and act to confine their waters, except during floodstage.
Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.
Hardened lava that has retained the vesicles produced by escaping gases.
A vertical section through a soil showing its succession of horizons and the underlying parent material.
Isolated hill of sand that exhibits a complex form and develops where wind directions are variable.
A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.
A small, very intense cyclonic storm with exceedingly high winds, most often produced along cold fronts in conjunction with severe thunderstorms.
Wave of translation
The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.
