  • Paleontology

    The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.

  • Polar front

    The stormy frontal zone separating air masses of polar origin from air masses of tropical origin.

  • Right ascension

    An angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox. Used with declination in a coordinate system to describe the position of celestial bodies.

  • Spectral class

    A classification of a star according to the characteristics of its spectrum.

  • Storm surge

    The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.

  • Turbidity current
