Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.
Adiabatic temperature change
Cooling or warming of air caused when air is allowed to expand or is compressed, not because heat is added or subtracted.
A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.
The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.
A large group of stars.
Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.
A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.
Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.
A break in a rock mass along which movement has occurred.
Natural steam used for power generation.
See H-R diagram.
A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.
Marine west coast climate
A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool
Rocks formed by the alteration of preexisting rock deep within Earth (but still in the solid state) by heat, pressure, and/or chemically active fluids.
A spherical shell composed of comets that orbit the Sun at distances generally greater than 10,000 times the Earth–Sun distance.
The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.
The gravitational disturbance of the orbit of one celestial body by another.
A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.
The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.
A small, very intense cyclonic storm with exceedingly high winds, most often produced along cold fronts in conjunction with severe thunderstorms.
