A feldspar-rich sandstone.
The exchanges of energy and moisture that occur among the atmosphere, hydrosphere, solid Earth, biosphere, and cryosphere.
Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
One of three basic cloud forms; also the name given one of the clouds of vertical development. Cumulus are billowy individual cloud masses that often have flat bases.
Daily temperature range
The difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.
A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.
Buoyant plumes of hot, ashladen gases that can extend thousands of meters into the atmosphere.
A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.
A vent in a volcanic area from which fumes or gases escape.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the stratosphere and characterized by decreasing temperatures with height.
An extensive region on the ocean floor composed of thick accumulations of pillow basalts and other mafic rocks that in some cases exceed 30 kilometers in thickness.
Oceanic ridge system
A continuous elevated zone on the floor of all the major ocean basins and varying in width from 500 to 5,000 kilometers (300–3,000 miles). The rifts at the crests of ridges represent divergent plate boundaries.
Anticyclones that are assumed to occupy the inner polar regions and are believed to be thermally induced, at least in part.
Metamorphism associated with large-scale mountain-building processes.
The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.
Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.
