The level below which a stream cannot erode.
An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.
A strip of land that extends inland from the coastline as far as ocean-related features can be found.
A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.
The name given to the periodic warming of the ocean that occurs in the central and eastern Pacific. A major El Niño episode can cause extreme weather in many parts of the world.
A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.
The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.
A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.
The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.
A chemical bond present in all metals that may be characterized as an extreme type of electron sharing in which the electrons move freely from atom to atom.
A common measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, it is a logarithmic scale ranging from 0 to 14. A value of 7 denotes a neutral solution, values below 7 indicate greater acidity, and numbers above 7 indicate greater alkalinity.
Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.
Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.
Rock formed from the weathered products of preexisting rocks that have been transported, deposited, and lithified.
Sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.
A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.
A nourishment level in a food chain. Plant and algae producers constitute the lowest level, followed by herbivores and a series of carnivores at progressively higher levels.
