Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.
The place in the orbit of a planet where the planet is farthest from the Sun.
A theory of climatic change first developed by Yugoslavian astronomer Milutin Milankovitch. It is based on changes in the shape of Earth’s orbit, variations in the obliquity of Earth’s axis, and the wobbling of Earth’s axis.
A wind blowing down the lee-ward side of a mountain and warming by compression.

Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.
A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.
The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.
A seaward extension of a valley that was cut on the continental shelf during a time when sea level was lower, or a canyon carved into the outer continental shelf, slope, and rise by turbidity currents.
Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.
