Astronomical unit (AU)
Average distance from Earth to the Sun; or
Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.
The depression at the summit of a volcano, or that which is produced by a meteorite impact.
The formation and growth of a crystalline solid from a liquid or gas.
A term used to describe plutons that cut across existing rock structures, such as bedding planes.
A section of a stream that leaves the main flow.
The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.
Dry adiabatic rate
The rate of adiabatic cooling or warming in unsaturated air. The rate of temperature change is 1° C per 100 meters.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
A thick mass of ice originating on land from the compaction and recrystallization of snow that shows evidence of past or present flow.
A submerged flat-topped seamount.
An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.
A body of molten rock found at depth, including any dissolved gases and crystals.
A cloud occupying the height range from 2,000 to 6,000 meters.
Mixed tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.
The scientific study of the oceans and oceanic phenomena.
Primary (P) wave
A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.
One of three basic cloud forms; also, the name given one of the flow clouds. They are sheets or layers that cover much or all of the sky
Transform fault boundary
A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.
