The weight of water vapor in a given volume of air (usually expressed in GRAMS/M3).
A form of condensation best described as a dense concentration of suspended water droplets or tiny ice crystals.
The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.
A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.
A submerged flat-topped seamount.
A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.
The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.
See Oceanic ridge system.
The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.
Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.
Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.
The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.
Secondary (S) wave
A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.
A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.
A layer of soil that has identifiable characteristics produced by chemical weathering and other soil-forming processes.
See Divergent boundary.
Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.
The end moraine marking the farthest advance of a glacier.
A cobble or pebble polished and shaped by the sandblasting effect of wind.
The horizontal distance separating successive crests or troughs.
