Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.
The time when the vertical rays of the Sun are striking the equator. The length of daylight and darkness is equal at all latitudes at equinox.
A sudden brightening of an area on the Sun.
Any form of artificial structure built to protect a coast or to prevent the movement of sand along a beach. Examples include groins, jetties, breakwaters, and seawalls.
A phenomenon, sometimes associated with earthquakes, in which soils and other unconsolidated materials containing abundant water are turned into a fluid-like mass that is not capable of supporting buildings.
Longitudinal (seif dunes)
Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
A body of molten rock found at depth, including any dissolved gases and crystals.
A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.
The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.
The relatively flat submerged zone that extends from the breaker line to the edge of the continental shelf.
Conspicuously large crystals embedded in a matrix of finer-grained crystals.
A highly heated mixture, largely of ash and pumice fragments, traveling down the flanks of a volcano or along the surface of the ground.
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.
Hardened lava that has retained the vesicles produced by escaping gases.
See Cinder cone.
Secondary (S) wave
A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.
A fault along which the movement is horizontal.
The condition of water droplets that remain in the liquid state at temperatures well below 0° C.
A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.
