Circle of illumination
The great circle that separates daylight from darkness.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.
The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.
Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.
A galaxy that lacks symmetry.
Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.
A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.
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.
Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.
A fault in which the rock above the fault plane has moved down relative to the rock below.
A naturally occurring concentration of one or more metallic minerals that can be extracted economically.
Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.
The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.
An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.
The force per unit area acting on any surface within a solid.
Wind-generated waves that have moved into an area of weaker winds or calm.
A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.
Wave of oscillation
A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
