A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.
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 theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.
The gently sloping submerged portion of the continental margin, extending from the shoreline to the continental slope.
A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.
That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.
A type of unconformity in which the beds above and below are parallel.
A coating of ice on objects formed when supercooled rain freezes on contact.
Refers to the common or characteristic shape of a crystal, or aggregate of crystals.
The distance light travels in a year; about 6 trillion miles.
Mixed tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.
The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.
See Lithospheric plate.
The nature of the change in atmospheric pressure over the past several hours. It can be a useful aid in short range weather prediction.
Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.
The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.
The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.
A marshy or muddy area that is covered and uncovered by the rise and fall of the tide.
The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere.
A term applied to igneous rocks that contain small cavities called vesicles, which are formed when gases escape from lava.
