  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Core

    Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.

  • Coriolis force (effect)

    The deflective force of Earth’s rotation on all free-moving objects, including the atmosphere and oceans. Deflection is to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Degenerate matter

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

  • Ecliptic

    The yearly path of the Sun plotted against the background of stars.

  • Eye

    A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.

  • Geologic time scale

    The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.

  • Magma

    A body of molten rock found at depth, including any dissolved gases and crystals.

  • Meteorite

    Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.

  • Monthly mean temperature

    The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.

  • Plate tectonics

    The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Silicon-oxygen tetrahedron

    A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.

  • Solar constant

    The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.

  • Spring equinox

    The equinox that occurs on March 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on September 21–23 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Temperature inversion

    A layer in the atmosphere of limited depth where the temperature increases rather than decreases with height.

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.

  • Welded tuff

    A pyroclastic rock composed of particles that have been fused together by the combination of heat still contained in the deposit after it has come to rest and by the weight of overlying material.
