Astronomical unit (AU)
Average distance from Earth to the Sun; or
Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.
The wet, sloping surface that extends from the berm to the shoreline.
A theory of raindrop formation in warm clouds (above 0° C) in which large cloud droplets (giants) collide and join together with smaller droplets to form a raindrop. Opposite electrical charges may bind the cloud droplets together.
An apparent group of stars originally named for mythical characters. The sky is presently divided into 88 constellations.
The gently sloping submerged portion of the continental margin, extending from the shoreline to the continental slope.
A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.
The outer, tenuous layer of the solar atmosphere.
A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.
A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.
Dark, thin streaks that appear across the bright solar disk.
A group of interrelated food chains.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.
A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.
Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.
Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.
A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.
The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.
Secondary (S) wave
A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.
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.
