An instrument used to determine wind speed.
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 sedimentary rock composed of rounded, gravel-size particles.
Continental (c) air mass
An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.
A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.
The angular distance north or south of the celestial equator denoting the position of a celestial body.
A fault in which the movement is parallel to the dip of the fault.
A climate in which yearly precipitation is not as great as the potential loss of water by evaporation.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
Lapse rate (normal)
The average drop in temperature (6.5° C per kilometer; 3.5° F per 1,000 feet) with increased altitude in the troposphere.
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 mercury-filled glass tube in which the height of the mercury column is a measure of air pressure.
The point in the orbit of a planet where it is closest to the Sun.
Phases of the Moon
The progression of changes in the Moon’s appearance during the month.
An area where snow persists yearround.
An eclipse of the Sun.
Any size group of interacting parts that form a complex whole.
