A massive star that has collapsed to such a small volume that its gravity prevents the escape of all radiation.
The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.
An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.
A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.
Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.
Diurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.
The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.
