Angle of repose
The steepest angle at which loose material remains stationary without sliding downslope.
A feldspar-rich sandstone.
A narrow knifelike ridge separating two adjacent glaciated valleys.
A system that is self-contained with regards to matter—that is, no matter enters or leaves.
The coast’s seaward edge. The landward limit of the effect of the highest storm waves on the shore.
The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.
The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.
A fountain of hot water ejected periodically.
A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.
The total amount of energy released during an earthquake.
The Latin name for the smooth areas of the Moon formerly thought to be seas.
A wave-cut platform that has been exposed above sea level.
Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.
The path of a body in revolution around a center of mass.
A discrete amount (quantum) of electromagnetic energy.
Semidiurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.
A sudden and tremendous eruption in the solar chromosphere.
The time when the vertical rays of the
Transform fault boundary
A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.
The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
