An instrument that measures atmospheric pressure.
Barred spiral galaxy
A galaxy having straight arms extending from its nucleus.
A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.
A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.
The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.
Everything that surrounds and influences an organism.
Environmental lapse rate
The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.
A coating of ice on objects formed when supercooled rain freezes on contact.
An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.
The downslope movement of rock, regolith, and soil under the direct influence of gravity.
The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.
Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.
A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom.
The spontaneous emission of certain unstable atomic nuclei.
The force per unit area acting on any surface within a solid.
Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.
Any of the Earth-like planets, including Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth.
A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.
The concept that the processes that have shaped Earth in the geologic past are essentially the same as those operating today
