  • Front

    The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.

  • Frost wedging

    The mechanical breakup of rock caused by the expansion of freezing water in cracks and crevices.

  • Half graben

    A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.

  • Heliocentric

    The view that the Sun is at the center of the solar system.

  • La Niña

    An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.
