The measurement of ocean depths and the charting of the shape or topography of the ocean floor.
The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.
The movement of a tidal current away from the shore.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.
The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.
The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.
The conversion of hydrogen through fusion to form helium.
The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.
The downslope movement of rock, regolith, and soil under the direct influence of gravity.
Mean solar day
The average time between two passages of the Sun across the local celestial meridian.
The change of state from a solid to a liquid.
A subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom. The neutron is electrically neutral and has a mass approximately that of a proton.
The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.
A solid celestial body that accumulated during the first stages of planetary formation. Planetesimals aggregated into increasingly larger bodies, ultimately forming the planets.
The force exerted by electromagnetic radiation from an object such as the Sun.
One of the three main categories of meteorites. Such meteorites are composed largely of silicate minerals with inclusions of other minerals.
A system of streams in which nearly parallel tributaries occupy valleys cut in folded strata.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.
The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.
