A feldspar-rich sandstone.
A low, elongate ridge of sand that parallels the coast.
A large depression typically caused by collapse or ejection of the summit area of a volcano.
A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.
An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
The formation and growth of a crystalline solid from a liquid or gas.
The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.
The cutting-off of the light of one celestial body by another passing in front of it.
Relates the distance to a galaxy and its velocity.
A property of matter that resists a change in its motion.
A wave-cut platform that has been exposed above sea level.
A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.
The overtaking of one front by another.
Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.
Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.
The radioactive isotope of carbon, which is produced continuously in the atmosphere and is used in dating events from the very recent geologic past (the last few tens of thousands of years).
The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.
A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.
The idea that the rifting and dispersal of one supercontinent is followed by a long period during which the fragments gradually reassemble into a new supercontinent.
