A high-pressure center characterized by a clockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.
An imaginary hollow sphere upon which the ancients believed the stars were hung and carried around Earth.
Structure formed in a warm, shallow, sunlit ocean environment that consists primarily of the calcite-rich remains of corals as well as the limy secretions of algae and the hard parts of many other small organisms.
A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.
An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.
A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.
In addition to the tasks performed by conventional radar, this new generation of weather radar can detect motion directly and hence greatly improve tornado and severe storm warnings.
The largest time unit on the geologic time scale, next in order of magnitude above era.
A valley formed by the downward displacement of a fault-bounded block.
The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.
The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.
Magma that reaches Earth’s surface.
A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.
Seasonal reversal of wind direction associated with large continents, especially Asia. In winter, the wind blows from land to sea; in summer, from sea to land.
The stormy frontal zone separating air masses of polar origin from air masses of tropical origin.
Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.
The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.
The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.
The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.
Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.
