A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.
The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.
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.
A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.
Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.
An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.
Diurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.
See Glacial drift.
A coast where land that was formerly below sea level has been exposed either because of crustal uplift or a drop in sea level or both.
A short-focal-length lens used to enlarge the image in a telescope. The lens nearest the eye.
General term for any hydrocarbon that may be used as a fuel, including coal, oil, and natural gas.
Refers to the common or characteristic shape of a crystal, or aggregate of crystals.
The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.
Lines connecting points of equal temperature.
Magnetic time scale
A scale that shows the ages of magnetic reversals and is based on the polarity of lava flows of various ages.
The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.
A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.
The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.
