Rock or soil through which groundwater moves easily.
A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.
The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.
A low, elongate ridge of sand that parallels the coast.
Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.
The very thin outermost layer of Earth.
Environmental lapse rate
The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.
Igneous activity that occurs outside the crust.
A wind, usually above a height of 600 meters (2,000 feet), that blows parallel to the isobars.
The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.
The composition of igneous rocks lying between felsic and mafic.
A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.
A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.
A curved lake produced when a stream cuts off a meander.
A theory that is held with a very high degree of confidence and is comprehensive in scope.
A chemical reaction in the atmosphere that is triggered by sunlight, often yielding a secondary pollutant.
Small solar system bodies
Solar system objects not classified as planets or moons that include dwarf planets, asteroids, comets, and meteoroids.
The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.
Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.
Ice crystals instead of dew that form on surfaces when the dew point is below freezing.
