A recording barometer.
Blowout (deflation hollow)
A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.
A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.
The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.
A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.
Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.
Negative feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.
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.
The shape of these dunes resembles barchans, except their tips point into the wind; they often form along coasts that have strong onshore winds, abundant sand, and vegetation that partly covers the sand.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.
The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.
A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.
The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.
Scratches or grooves in a bedrock surface caused by the grinding action of a glacier and its load of sediment.
The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.
An exploding star that increases in brightness many thousands of times.
Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.
