The apparent brightness of a star if it were viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs (32.6 light-years). Used to compare the true brightness of stars.
Andean-type plate margin
Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.
The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.
Bowen’s reaction series
A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.
The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.
Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.
A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.
A soil lacking horizons.
A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.
A nearshore current that flows parallel to the shore.
A glacier that forms when one or more valley glaciers emerge from the confining walls of mountain valleys and spread out to create a broad sheet in the lowlands at the base of the mountains.
See Lithospheric plate.
A temporary lake in a playa.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
Frozen or semifrozen rain formed when raindrops freeze as they pass through a layer of cold air.
adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
