See Dry climate.
The portion of seafloor that lies between the continental margin and the oceanic ridge system. This region comprises almost 30 percent of Earth’s surface.
Dry adiabatic rate
The rate of adiabatic cooling or warming in unsaturated air. The rate of temperature change is 1° C per 100 meters.
A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.
The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.
A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.
Mean solar day
The average time between two passages of the Sun across the local celestial meridian.
Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.
Mercalli intensity scale A 12-point scale developed to evaluate earthquake intensity based on the amount of damage to various structures.
The path of a body in revolution around a center of mass.
A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.
A vertical conduit through which magmatic materials have passed.
The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.
The spontaneous emission of certain unstable atomic nuclei.
A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.
A scale of earthquake magnitude based on the motion of a seismograph.
The boundary between the stratosphere and the mesosphere.
A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.
A warning issued when a tornado has actually been sighted in an area or is indicated by radar.
