The wet, sloping surface that extends from the berm to the shoreline.
Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.
Small earthquakes that often precede a major earthquake.
A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.
A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.
A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.
A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.
Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.
The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.
The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.
As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.
A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.
A model that illustrates the origin of the three basic rock types and the interrelatedness of Earth materials and processes.
The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.
Semidiurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.
One of the three main categories of meteorites. Such meteorites are composed largely of silicate minerals with inclusions of other minerals.
The study of the large-scale processes that collectively deform Earth’s crust.
The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
