Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.
The second eon of Precambrian time, following the Hadean and preceding the Proterozoic. It extends between 3.8 billion and 2.5 billion years before the present.
Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.
Circle of illumination
The great circle that separates daylight from darkness.
A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.
A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.
Everything that surrounds and influences an organism.
The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.
Hot spot track
Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.
A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.
Law of conservation of angular momentum
The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.
A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.
A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.
The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.
A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.
A combination of mineral and organic matter, water, and air; that portion of the regolith that supports plant growth.
