The weight of water vapor in a given volume of air (usually expressed in GRAMS/M3).
Adiabatic temperature change
Cooling or warming of air caused when air is allowed to expand or is compressed, not because heat is added or subtracted.
The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.
Chemical sedimentary rock
Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.
The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.
The outer, tenuous layer of the solar atmosphere.
A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.
The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.
A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.
An organism whose genetic material is enclosed in a nucleus; plants, animals, and fungi are eukaryotes.
The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.
See Terrestrial planets.
A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.
The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.
The material upon which a soil develops.
Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.
A mechanical weathering process characterized by the splitting-off of slablike sheets of rock.
The downward slipping of a mass of rock or unconsolidated material moving as a unit along a curved surface.
The rising of cold water from deeper layers to replace warmer surface water that has been moved away.
Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.
