A large body of air that is characterized by a sameness of temperature and humidity.
Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.
An unconformity in which the strata below dip at an angle different from that of the beds above.
A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
An instrument that measures atmospheric pressure.
A phenomenon of light by which otherwise identical objects may be differentiated.
Structure formed in a warm, shallow, sunlit ocean environment that consists primarily of the calcite-rich remains of corals as well as the limy secretions of algae and the hard parts of many other small organisms.
A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.
Solid particles that serve as cores for the formation of ice crystals.
A thick mass of ice originating on land from the compaction and recrystallization of snow that shows evidence of past or present flow.
Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.
A thin, gray layer on the surface of the Moon, consisting of loosely compacted, fragmented material believed to have been formed by repeated meteoritic impacts.
The total amount of energy released during an earthquake.
A ridge of till formed when lateral moraines from two coalescing alpine glaciers join.
The marine-life zone beyond the continental shelf.
The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.
The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.
A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.
The ratio of the air’s watervapor content to its water-vapor capacity.
Secondary (S) wave
A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.
