  • Pycnocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change of density with depth.

  • Radiocarbon (carbon-14)

    The radioactive isotope of carbon, which is produced continuously in the atmosphere and is used in dating events from the very recent geologic past (the last few tens of thousands of years).

  • Salinity

    The proportion of dissolved salts to pure water, usually expressed in parts per thousand (%).

  • Sea stack

    An isolated mass of rock standing just offshore, produced by wave erosion of a headland.

  • Sediment

    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.

  • Semidiurnal tidal pattern
