A description of aggregate weather conditions; the sum of all statistical weather information that helps describe a place or region.
A tabular-shaped intrusive igneous feature that cuts through the surrounding rock.
The apparent change in wavelength of radiation caused by the relative motions of the source and the observer.
The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
Dust and gases found between stars.
A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.
Longitudinal (seif dunes)
Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.
The study of minerals.
Negative feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.
One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.
The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.
A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.
A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.
The color of a mineral in powdered form.
The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.
Describes a mineral’s toughness or its resistance to breaking or deforming.
The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.
Transform fault boundary
A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.
Zone of wastage
The part of a glacier beyond the zone of accumulation where all of the snow from the previous winter melts, as does some of the glacial ice.
