Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.
The name for all the sciences that collectively seek to understand Earth. It includes geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.
A compositional group of igneous rocks that indicates a rock is composed almost entirely of light-colored silicates.
Complex pattern of climate conditions associated with mountains. Highland climates are characterized by large differences that occur over short distances.
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.
A phenomenon, sometimes associated with earthquakes, in which soils and other unconsolidated materials containing abundant water are turned into a fluid-like mass that is not capable of supporting buildings.
An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.
The study of minerals.
Seasonal reversal of wind direction associated with large continents, especially Asia. In winter, the wind blows from land to sea; in summer, from sea to land.
A spherical shell composed of comets that orbit the Sun at distances generally greater than 10,000 times the Earth–Sun distance.
The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.
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.
Ground-up rock produced by the grinding effect of a glacier.
The line that marks the contact between land and sea. It migrates up and down as the tide rises and falls.
An eclipse of the Sun.
The columnlike form that grows upward from the floor of a cavern.
The force per unit area acting on any surface within a solid.
Wave of oscillation
A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
