A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.
A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.
Any economic mineral deposit in which the desired mineral occurs as scattered particles in the rock but in sufficient quantity to make the deposit an ore.
The science that examines Earth, its form and composition, and the changes it has undergone and is undergoing.
Humid continental climate
A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.
A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.
Mercalli intensity scale
See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.
Negative feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.
A measure of a material’s ability to transmit water.
See Lithospheric plate.
A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.
All geologic time prior to the Paleozoic era.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
A collapsing cloud of gas and dust destined to become a star.
A layer of water in which there is a rapid change of density with depth.
A telescope that employs a lens to bend and concentrate the light from distant objects.
A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.
The channel, valley floor, and sloping valley walls of a stream.
Any size group of interacting parts that form a complex whole.
A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting
