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 circular downfolded structure.
Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.
A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.
That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.
A stream system that resembles the pattern of a branching tree.
Celestial bodies that orbit stars, massive enough to be spherical but have not cleared their neighboring regions of planetesimals.
The movement of a tidal current away from the shore.
A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.
A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.
The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.
An igneous rock of ultramafic composition thought to be abundant in the upper mantle.
That part of geologic time represented by rocks containing abundant fossil evidence. The eon extending from the end of the Proterozoic eon (about 540 million years ago) to the present.
A region of Earth’s crust along which divergence is taking place.
A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.
A solid form of precipitation produced by sublimination of water vapor.
Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.
Parallel layers of sedimentary rock.
The condition of water droplets that remain in the liquid state at temperatures well below 0° C.
A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting
