• Front

The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.

• Humus

Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.

• Law of conservation of angular momentum

The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

• Lunar highlands

See Terrae.

• Mohs scale

A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.

• Moment magnitude

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.

• Outwash plain

A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.

• Overrunning

Warm air gliding up a retreating cold air mass.

• Pangaea

The proposed supercontinent that 200 million years ago began to break apart and form the present landmasses.

• Period

A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

• Sinkhole

A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.

• Source region

The area where an air mass acquires its characteristic properties of temperature and moisture.

• Stromatolite

Structures that are deposited by algae and consist of layered mounds of calcium carbonate.

• Subduction zone

A long, narrow zone where one lithospheric plate descends beneath another.

• Temperature

A measure of the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance; a measure of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.
