Rain or snow with a pH value that is less than the pH of unpolluted precipitation.
Annual mean temperature
An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.
A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.
Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
Earth system science
An interdisciplinary study that seeks to examine Earth as a system composed of numerous interacting parts or subsystems.
Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.
Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.
A term used to describe the texture of certain igneous rocks, such as obsidian, that contain no crystals.
The fine structure visible on the solar surface caused by convective cells below.
Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.
An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.
The distance at which an object would have a parallax angle of 1 second of arc (3.26 lightyears).
A broad, gently sloping volcano built from fluid basaltic lavas.
An area where snow persists yearround.
Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.
Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.
The lowermost layer of the atmosphere. It is generally characterized by a decrease in temperature with height.
