  • Dark-line spectrum

    See Absorption spectrum.

  • Degenerate matter

    Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Elastic rebound

    The sudden release of stored strain in rocks that results in movement along a fault.

  • Eon

    The largest time unit on the geologic time scale, next in order of magnitude above era.

  • Marine terrace

    A wave-cut platform that has been exposed above sea level.

  • Negative feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.

  • Photochemical reaction

    A chemical reaction in the atmosphere that is triggered by sunlight, often yielding a secondary pollutant.

  • Refraction

    The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.
