Cosmological red shift
Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.
The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.
The portion of seafloor that lies between the continental margin and the oceanic ridge system. This region comprises almost 30 percent of Earth’s surface.
An instrument used to determine the depth of water by measuring the time interval between emission of a sound signal and the return of its echo from the bottom.
The location on Earth’s surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake.
Humid subtropical climate
A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.
Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.
