The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.
A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.
See Dry climate.
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.
A front along which a cold air mass thrusts beneath a warmer air mass.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
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 coast where land that was formerly below sea level has been exposed either because of crustal uplift or a drop in sea level or both.
Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.
A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.
Nonmetallic mineral resource
Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.
A loosely formed group of stars of similar origin.
Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.
A model that illustrates the origin of the three basic rock types and the interrelatedness of Earth materials and processes.
Transportation of sediment through a series of leaps or bounces.
The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.
Hardened lava that has retained the vesicles produced by escaping gases.
A local wind blowing from the sea during the afternoon in coastal areas.
A coast with a form that is largely the result of the partial drowning of a former land surface either because of a rise of sea level or subsidence of the crust or both.
Transform fault boundary
A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.
