Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.
The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.
A span on the geologic time scale beginning about 65 million years ago following the Mesozoic era.
The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.
Detrital sedimentary rock
Rock formed from the accumulation of material that originated and was transported in the form of solid particles derived from both mechanical and chemical weathering.
Environmental lapse rate
The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.
A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.
A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.
The energy absorbed or released during a change in state.
Deposits of windblown silt, lacking visible layers, generally buff-colored, and capable of maintaining a nearly vertical cliff.
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.
Mercalli intensity scale A 12-point scale developed to evaluate earthquake intensity based on the amount of damage to various structures.
A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.
The layer of rock and mineral fragments that nearly everywhere covers Earth’s surface.
A vertical section through a soil showing its succession of horizons and the underlying parent material.
The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.
Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.
A band along the ecliptic containing the 12 constellations of the zodiac.
