Rain or snow with a pH value that is less than the pH of unpolluted precipitation.
An instrument used to determine wind speed.
A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.
An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.
A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.
A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.
A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.
A texture of igneous rocks in which the crystals are too small for individual minerals to be distinguished with the unaided eye.
A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.
Hot spot track
Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.
A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.
The process, generally cementation and/or compaction, of converting sediments to solid rock.
A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.

A magnetic field that is the same as that which exists at present.
The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.
Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.
The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.
