Annual temperature range
The difference between the highest and lowest monthly temperature means.
The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.
A theory that relates the formation of precipitation to supercooled clouds, freezing nuclei, and the different saturation levels of ice and liquid water.
A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.
Dry-summer subtropical climate
A climate located on the west sides of continents between latitudes 30° and 45°. It is the only humid climate with a strong winter precipitation maximum.
A hill or ridge of wind-deposited sand.
The initial velocity an object needs to escape from the surface of a celestial body.
Displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.
A cloud that normally has its base above 6,000 meters; the base may be lower in winter and at high-latitude locations.
A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.
A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.
A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.
A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.
A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.
The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.
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.
A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.
Zone of saturation
Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
