A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.
A description of aggregate weather conditions; the sum of all statistical weather information that helps describe a place or region.
A front along which a cold air mass thrusts beneath a warmer air mass.
A circulation pattern characterized by a light wind blowing into a city from the surrounding countryside. It is best developed on clear and otherwise calm nights when the urban heat island is most pronounced.
A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.
A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.
A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.
The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.
One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.
An Earth-centered system of the universe.
A highly heated mixture, largely of ash and pumice fragments, traveling down the flanks of a volcano or along the surface of the ground.
A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.
An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.
That part of the craton that is mantled by relatively undeformed sedimentary rocks and underlain by a basement complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks.
A seaward extension of a valley that was cut on the continental shelf during a time when sea level was lower, or a canyon carved into the outer continental shelf, slope, and rise by turbidity currents.
The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.
The study of the large-scale processes that collectively deform Earth’s crust.
Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.
Zone of saturation
Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
