  • Density

    Mass per unit volume of a substance, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter

  • Interstellar matter

  • Mineral resource

    All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.

  • Octet rule

    Atoms combine in order that each may have the electron arrangement of a noble gas; that is, the outer energy level contains eight neutrons.

    The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.

  • Pelagic zone
