A continuous spectrum with dark lines superimposed.
A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.
The level below which a stream cannot erode.
A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.
Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.
A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.
That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.
The location on Earth’s surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.
Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.
Geologic time scale
The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.
A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.
A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.
The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.
Sun are striking either the
Tropic of Cancer or the Tropic of Capricorn. Solstice represents the longest or shortest day (length of daylight) of the year.
A measure of the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance; a measure of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.
A well-tested and widely accepted view that explains certain observable facts.
