Adiabatic temperature change
Cooling or warming of air caused when air is allowed to expand or is compressed, not because heat is added or subtracted.
Altitude (of the Sun)
The angle of the Sun above the horizon.
The fuzzy, gaseous component of a comet’s head.
That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.
Everything that surrounds and influences an organism.
Humid continental climate
A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.
Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.
The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.
Seasonal reversal of wind direction associated with large continents, especially Asia. In winter, the wind blows from land to sea; in summer, from sea to land.
Water that flows over the land rather than infiltrating into the ground.
A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.
Any weathering process that tends to produce a spherical shape from an initially blocky shape.
An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.
The size, shape, and distribution of the particles that collectively constitute a rock.
A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.
That part of the total atmospheric pressure attributable to water-vapor content.
The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.
A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting
An opening bored into the zone of saturation.
