Rain or snow with a pH value that is less than the pH of unpolluted precipitation.
The equinox that occurs on September 21–23 in the Northern Hemisphere and on March 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.
The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.
A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.
The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.
An imaginary line that separates the drainage of two streams; often found along a ridge.
