Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.
A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.
One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.
A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.
A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.
A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers
The group of igneous rocks composed primarily of feldspar and quartz.
The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.
A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.
A mass of glacial ice covering a high upland or plateau and spreading out radially.
An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.
A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.
A magnetic field that is the same as that which exists at present.
A common measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, it is a logarithmic scale ranging from 0 to 14. A value of 7 denotes a neutral solution, values below 7 indicate greater acidity, and numbers above 7 indicate greater alkalinity.
A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.
A drainage pattern characterized by numerous right-angle bends that develops on jointed or fractured bedrock.
A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.
A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.
A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.
Air that does not resist vertical displacement. If it is lifted, its temperature will not cool as rapidly as the surrounding environment, so it will continue to rise on its own.
