The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.
One of three basic cloud forms; also the name given one of the clouds of vertical development. Cumulus are billowy individual cloud masses that often have flat bases.
Rock deformation in which the rock will return to nearly its original size and shape when the stress is removed.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
The absorption of ultraviolet light, which is reemitted as visible light.
See H-R diagram.
A system for classifying climates devised by Wladimir Köppen that is based on mean monthly and annual values of temperature and precipitation.
The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.
The liquid portion of magma, excluding the solid crystals.
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.
The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.
The elevated landforms that parallel some streams and act to confine their waters, except during floodstage.
An unconformity in which older metamorphic or intrusive igneous rocks are overlain by younger sedimentary strata.
The proposed supercontinent that 200 million years ago began to break apart and form the present landmasses.
The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.
Soil developed directly from the weathering of the bedrock below.
A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.
A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.
A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.
