Full solutions for Astronomy Today | 8th Edition
Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.
A circular downfolded structure.
The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.
The property of a lens whereby light of different colors is focused at different places.
A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.
Dry adiabatic rate
The rate of adiabatic cooling or warming in unsaturated air. The rate of temperature change is 1° C per 100 meters.
The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
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.
A change in Earth’s magnetic field from normal to reverse or vice versa.
A looplike bend in the course of a stream.
The liquid portion of magma, excluding the solid crystals.
Monthly mean temperature
The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.
The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.
The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.
A warning issued when a tornado has actually been sighted in an area or is indicated by radar.
Turbidity current deposit characterized by graded bedding.
The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
