The brightness of a star when viewed from Earth.
Impermeable beds that hinder or prevent groundwater movement.
The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.
A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.
The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.
