Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.
Zone of inclined seismic activity that extends from a trench downward into the asthenosphere.
Bowen’s reaction series
A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.
Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.
The formation and growth of a crystalline solid from a liquid or gas.
One of the two types of dry climate; the driest of the dry climates.
A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.
An eruption in which lava is extruded from narrow fractures or cracks in the crust.
A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.
A span on the geologic time scale between the Paleozoic and Cenozoic eras from about 248 million to 65 million years ago.
Rocks formed by the alteration of preexisting rock deep within Earth (but still in the solid state) by heat, pressure, and/or chemically active fluids.
The source of the Sun’s energy.
One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.
A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.
A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.
A collective term for breakers; also, the wave activity in the area between the shoreline and the outer limit of breakers.
The extensively cratered highland areas of the Moon.
The sound emitted by rapidly expanding gases along the channel of lightning discharge.
Soils that form on unconsolidated deposits.
adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
