  • Hydrogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of minerals that crystallize from seawater. An important example is manganese nodules.

  • Lapse rate (normal)

    The average drop in temperature (6.5° C per kilometer; 3.5° F per 1,000 feet) with increased altitude in the troposphere.

  • Magnetic reversal

    A change in Earth’s magnetic field from normal to reverse or vice versa.

  • Meander

    A looplike bend in the course of a stream.

  • Melt

  • Precipitation fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Seawall
