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.
One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.
Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.
The name given to the periodic warming of the ocean that occurs in the central and eastern Pacific. A major El Niño episode can cause extreme weather in many parts of the world.
Displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.
Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.
The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.
Any form of artificial structure built to protect a coast or to prevent the movement of sand along a beach. Examples include groins, jetties, breakwaters, and seawalls.
An isolated mountain remnant characteristic of the late stage of erosion in an arid region.
The energy absorbed or released during a change in state.
The cluster of 20 or so galaxies to which our galaxy belongs.
Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.
Nonmetallic mineral resource
Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.
Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.
Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.
A drainage pattern characterized by numerous right-angle bends that develops on jointed or fractured bedrock.
The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.
A strong narrow surface or nearsurface current of short duration and high speed flowing seaward through the breaker zone at nearly right angles to the shore. It represents the return to the ocean of water that has been piled up on the shore by incoming waves.
A solid form of precipitation produced by sublimination of water vapor.
