The apparent brightness of a star if it were viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs (32.6 light-years). Used to compare the true brightness of stars.
A fold in sedimentary strata resembling an arch.
See Dry climate.
A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.
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 streamlined asymmetrical hill composed of glacial till. The steep side of the hill faces the direction from which the ice advanced.
A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.
A belt of low pressure lying near the equator and between the subtropical highs.
The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.
A span on the geologic time scale between the eons of the Precambrian and Mesozoic era from about 540 million to 248 million years ago.
An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.
A developing planetary body that grows by the accumulation of planetesimals.
The transfer of energy (heat) through space by electromagnetic waves.
Secondary (S) wave
A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.
A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.
Tropic of Cancer
The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees north latitude, marking the northern limit of the Sun’s vertical rays.
