Active continental margin
Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.
The force exerted by the weight of a column of air above a given point.
A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.
A large depression typically caused by collapse or ejection of the summit area of a volcano.
The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.
A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.
A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.
Dry-summer subtropical climate
A climate located on the west sides of continents between latitudes 30° and 45°. It is the only humid climate with a strong winter precipitation maximum.
A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers
A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.
Geologic time scale
The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.
A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.
Nonmetallic mineral resource
Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.
See Axial precession.
The record made by a seismograph.
A broad, gently sloping volcano built from fluid basaltic lavas.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.4 to 0.7 micrometer.
The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
