A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.
The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.
A large group of stars.
The gently sloping surface at the base of the continental slope.
Cosmological red shift
Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.
A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.
The movement of a tidal current away from the shore.
Evolution (Theory of)
A fundamental theory in biology and paleontology that sets forth the process by which members of a population of organisms come to differ from their ancestors. Organisms evolve by means of mutations, natural selection, and genetic factors. Modern species are descended from related but different species that lived in earlier times.
A valley formed by the downward displacement of a fault-bounded block.
A line drawn on a map connecting points of equal atmospheric pressure, usually corrected to sea level.
Mixed tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.
The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.
A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.
The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.
The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.
An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.
The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.
A layer of soil that has identifiable characteristics produced by chemical weathering and other soil-forming processes.
A very large star of high luminosity.
