A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
The bright lines produced by an incandescent gas under low pressure.
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.
Coriolis force (effect)
The deflective force of Earth’s rotation on all free-moving objects, including the atmosphere and oceans. Deflection is to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.
A roughly circular upfolded structure similar to an anticline.
A term used to describe the texture of certain igneous rocks, such as obsidian, that contain no crystals.
The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.
Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.
A flat area on the floor of an undrained desert basin. Following heavy rain, the playa becomes a lake.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.
A relatively dense dust cloud in interstellar space that is illuminated by starlight.
Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.
The process by which solid particles of various sizes are separated by moving water or wind. Also, the degree of similarity in particle size in sediment or sedimentary rock.
Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.
The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.
A marshy or muddy area that is covered and uncovered by the rise and fall of the tide.
Tropic of Cancer
The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees north latitude, marking the northern limit of the Sun’s vertical rays.
Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.
The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.
