Banded iron formations
A finely layered iron and silica-rich (chert) layer deposited mainly during the Precambrian.
Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.
Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.
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.
In addition to the tasks performed by conventional radar, this new generation of weather radar can detect motion directly and hence greatly improve tornado and severe storm warnings.
A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.
The washing-out of fine soil components from the horizon by downward-percolating water.
A sedimentary rock formed of material deposited from solution by evaporation of water.
Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.
A break in a rock mass along which movement has occurred.
The solid innermost layer of Earth, about 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) in radius.
The relatively flat submerged zone that extends from the breaker line to the edge of the continental shelf.
The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.
The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.
The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.
Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.
Highest tidal range that occurs near the times of the new and full moons.
A situation in which the surface position of a front does not move; the flow on either side of such a boundary is nearly parallel to the position of the front.
Fog created when air moves up a slope and cools adiabatically.
