  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Bathymetry

    The measurement of ocean depths and the charting of the shape or topography of the ocean floor.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Contact metamorphism

    Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.

  • Diffused light

    Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.

  • Drawdown

    The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Fault-block mountain

    A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Kuiper belt

    A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.

  • Middle cloud

    A cloud occupying the height range from 2,000 to 6,000 meters.

  • Occluded front

    A front formed when a cold front overtakes a warm front. It marks the beginning of the end of a middle-latitude cyclone.

  • Period

    A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

  • Reflection nebula

    A relatively dense dust cloud in interstellar space that is illuminated by starlight.

  • Seismic waves

    A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.

  • Soil texture

    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.

  • Spectral class

    A classification of a star according to the characteristics of its spectrum.

  • Terrae

    The extensively cratered highland areas of the Moon.

  • Transported soil

    Soils that form on unconsolidated deposits.

  • Uniformitarianism
