Arctic (A) air mass
A bitterly cold air mass that forms over the frozen Arctic Ocean.
A span on the geologic time scale beginning about 65 million years ago following the Mesozoic era.
A form of condensation best described as a dense concentration of suspended water droplets or tiny ice crystals.
The coast’s seaward edge. The landward limit of the effect of the highest storm waves on the shore.
Continental (c) air mass
An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.
The apparent change in wavelength of radiation caused by the relative motions of the source and the observer.
The movement of a tidal current away from the shore.
Natural steam used for power generation.
An all-embracing term for sediments of glacial origin, no matter how, where, or in what shape they were deposited.
A valley formed by the downward displacement of a fault-bounded block.
A galaxy that lacks symmetry.
The energy absorbed or released during a change in state.
That part of geologic time represented by rocks containing abundant fossil evidence. The eon extending from the end of the Proterozoic eon (about 540 million years ago) to the present.
Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.
Passively drifting or weakly swimming organisms that cannot move independently of ocean currents. Includes microscopic algae, protozoa, jellyfish, and larval forms of many animals.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.
A long, narrow zone where one lithospheric plate descends beneath another.
See Contact metamorphism.
The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.
