Arctic (A) air mass
A bitterly cold air mass that forms over the frozen Arctic Ocean.
See Pressure tendency.
Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.
The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.
A deep crack in the brittle surface of a glacier.
The area of active erosion on the outside of a meander.
A hill or ridge of wind-deposited sand.
The downslope movement of watersaturated, clay-rich sediment. Most characteristic of humid regions.
Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.
A type of movement common to masswasting processes in which water-saturated material moves downslope as a viscous fluid.
The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.
A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.
Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.
A discontinuous pattern of intermittent streams that do not flow to the ocean.
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 process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.
The ability of a telescope to separate objects that would otherwise appear as one.
An angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox. Used with declination in a coordinate system to describe the position of celestial bodies.
