  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Breccia

    A sedimentary rock composed of angular fragments that were lithified.

  • Chemical compound

    A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.

  • Cleavage

    The tendency of a mineral to break along planes of weak bonding.

  • Dark matter

    Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.

  • Fall

    A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Gyre

    The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.

  • Horn

    A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.

  • Humidity

    A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Mineral resource

    All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.

  • Parent material

    The material upon which a soil develops.

  • Plucking (quarrying)

  • Pycnocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change of density with depth.

  • Scattering

    The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.

  • Shadow zone

    The zone between 104 and 143 degrees distance from an earthquake epicenter in which direct waves do not arrive because of refraction by Earth’s core.
