Solutions for Chapter 10.1: Photosynthesis converts light energy to the chemical energy of foodGet Full Solutions
A mixture of many discrete gases, of which nitrogen and oxygen are most abundant, in which varying quantities of tiny solid and liquid particles are suspended.
See Intermediate composition.
A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.
The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.
Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.
Environmental lapse rate
The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.
The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.
A submerged flat-topped seamount.
Relates the distance to a galaxy and its velocity.
A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.
See Terrestrial planets.
A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.
The scientific study of the oceans and oceanic phenomena.
Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.
The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.
That part of the craton that is mantled by relatively undeformed sedimentary rocks and underlain by a basement complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks.
Describes a mineral’s toughness or its resistance to breaking or deforming.
The upper level of the saturated zone of groundwater.
A tributary that flows parallel to the main stream because a natural levee is present.
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.
