The force exerted by the weight of a column of air above a given point.
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.
A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.
A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.
Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.
A soil lacking horizons.
Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.
The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.
The distance light travels in a year; about 6 trillion miles.
A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.
The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.
Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
A telescope that employs a lens to bend and concentrate the light from distant objects.
Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.
An instrument that records earthquake waves.
An exploding star that increases in brightness many thousands of times.
Seafloor sediments derived from terrestrial weathering and erosion.
The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
Zone of fracture
The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
