An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.
A final state of evolution for a star, in which all of its energy sources are exhausted and it no longer emits radiation.
Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.
A term used to describe plutons that cut across existing rock structures, such as bedding planes.
The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.
A steep-sided hill composed of sand and gravel originating when sediment is collected in openings in stagnant glacial ice.
Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.
A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.
A layer beneath the mantle about 2,200 kilometers (1,364 miles) thick that has the properties of a liquid.
A vertical conduit through which magmatic materials have passed.
A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.
Polar (P) air mass
A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.
The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.
The ability of a telescope to separate objects that would otherwise appear as one.
The zone between 104 and 143 degrees distance from an earthquake epicenter in which direct waves do not arrive because of refraction by Earth’s core.
The color of a mineral in powdered form.
A warning issued for areas of about 65,000 square kilometers (25,000 square miles), indicating that conditions are such that tornadoes may develop; it is intended to alert people to the possibility of tornadoes.
That part of the total atmospheric pressure attributable to water-vapor content.
The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
