Impermeable beds that hinder or prevent groundwater movement.
A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.
The wet, sloping surface that extends from the berm to the shoreline.
An imaginary hollow sphere upon which the ancients believed the stars were hung and carried around Earth.
A small body that generally revolves about the Sun in an elongated orbit.
A type of movement common to masswasting processes in which water-saturated material moves downslope as a viscous fluid.
A succession of organisms in an ecological community through which food energy is transferred from producers through herbivores and on to one or more carnivores.
Inclination of the axis
The tilt of Earth’s axis from the perpendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit.
The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.
All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.
Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.
The relatively flat submerged zone that extends from the breaker line to the edge of the continental shelf.
An imaginary volume of air enclosed in a thin elastic cover. Typically it is considered to be a few hundred cubic meters in volume and is assumed to act independently of the surrounding air.
The point in the orbit of a planet where it is closest to the Sun.
See Lithospheric plate.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.
A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.
A major strike-slip fault that cuts through the lithosphere and accommodates motion between two plates.
That part of the total atmospheric pressure attributable to water-vapor content.
