Bowen’s reaction series
A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.
The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.
A section of a stream that leaves the main flow.
Buoyant plumes of hot, ashladen gases that can extend thousands of meters into the atmosphere.
A texture of igneous rocks in which the crystals are too small for individual minerals to be distinguished with the unaided eye.
A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.
The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.
The small heavy core of an atom that contains all of its positive charge and most of its mass.
The shape of these dunes resembles barchans, except their tips point into the wind; they often form along coasts that have strong onshore winds, abundant sand, and vegetation that partly covers the sand.
The stormy frontal zone separating air masses of polar origin from air masses of tropical origin.
See Energy levels.
A system of streams running in all directions away from a central elevated structure, such as a volcano.
The process by which solid particles of various sizes are separated by moving water or wind. Also, the degree of similarity in particle size in sediment or sedimentary rock.
The study of spectra.
See Divergent boundary.
The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.
A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.
A system of streams in which nearly parallel tributaries occupy valleys cut in folded strata.
The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.
