Active continental margin
Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.
A narrow knifelike ridge separating two adjacent glaciated valleys.
Common term for sand and gravel deposits in a stream channel.
The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.
Environmental lapse rate
The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.

A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.
A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.
Compensation of the lithosphere when weight is added or removed. When weight is added, the lithosphere will respond by subsiding, and when weight is removed, there will be uplift.
The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.
The luminous phenomenon observed when a meteoroid enters Earth’s atmosphere and burns up; popularly called a “shooting star.”
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.
An instrument that records earthquake waves.
The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.
A measure of the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance; a measure of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.
Tropic of Capricorn
The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees south latitude, marking the southern limit of the Sun’s verticalrays.
A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.
A cobble or pebble polished and shaped by the sandblasting effect of wind.
An isolated, steep-sided, erosional remnant consisting of lava that once occupied the vent of a volcano.
Zone of fracture
The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
