Rain or snow with a pH value that is less than the pH of unpolluted precipitation.
Altitude (of the Sun)
The angle of the Sun above the horizon.
The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.
Cone of depression
A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
A luminous star of large radius.
A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.
A cloud that normally has its base above 6,000 meters; the base may be lower in winter and at high-latitude locations.
Lines connecting points of equal temperature.
Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.
Longitudinal (seif dunes)
Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
The physical disintegration of rock, resulting in smaller fragments.
Mohorovicˆi´c; discontinuity (Moho)
The boundary separating the crust from the mantle, discernible by an increase in seismic velocity.
A solid celestial body that accumulated during the first stages of planetary formation. Planetesimals aggregated into increasingly larger bodies, ultimately forming the planets.
The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.
An end moraine formed as the ice front stagnated during glacial retreat.
The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.
A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.
The downward slipping of a mass of rock or unconsolidated material moving as a unit along a curved surface.
A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
