The total amount of sediment a stream is able to transport.
The depression at the summit of a volcano, or that which is produced by a meteorite impact.
A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers
The southern portion of Pangaea consisting of South America, Africa, Australia, India, and Antarctica.
An elongated, uplifted block of crust bounded by faults.
Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.
A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.
One of the three main categories of meteorites. This group is composed largely of iron with varying amounts of nickel (5–20 percent). Most meteorite finds are irons.
The gravitational disturbance of the orbit of one celestial body by another.
A system of streams running in all directions away from a central elevated structure, such as a volcano.
The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.
The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.
Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.
Seaward of the coast, this zone extends from the highest level of wave action during storms to the lowest tide level.
A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.
An instrument for directly viewing the spectrum of a light source.
A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
The size, shape, and distribution of the particles that collectively constitute a rock.
The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.
A star that has exhausted most or all of its nuclear fuel and has collapsed to a very small size; believed to be near its final stage of evolution.
