The force exerted by the weight of a column of air above a given point.
A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.
A large depression typically caused by collapse or ejection of the summit area of a volcano.
One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.
Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.
Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.
A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.
The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.
The area where land and sea meet and overlap; the zone between high and low tides.
A curved lake produced when a stream cuts off a meander.
A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.
A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.
Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.
The O, A, and B horizons in a soil profile. Living roots and other plant and animal life are largely confined to this zone.
Sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.
Wind-generated waves that have moved into an area of weaker winds or calm.
Temporary (local) base level
The level of a lake, resistant rock layer, or any other base level that stands above sea level.
Any of the Earth-like planets, including Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth.
The rising of cold water from deeper layers to replace warmer surface water that has been moved away.
Red giants that overshoot equilibrium, then alternately expand and contract.
