The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.
A stream system that resembles the pattern of a branching tree.
Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.
A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.
A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.
A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.
Hot spot track
Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.
Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.
Lapse rate (normal)
The average drop in temperature (6.5° C per kilometer; 3.5° F per 1,000 feet) with increased altitude in the troposphere.
The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.
Negative feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.
A volcanic cone that forms on the flank of a larger volcano.
A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.
The volcanic rock ejected during an eruption, including ash, bombs, and blocks.
A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.
Lower limit of perennial snow.
One of the three main categories of meteorites. Such meteorites are composed largely of silicate minerals with inclusions of other minerals.
The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.
The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.
A pyroclastic rock composed of particles that have been fused together by the combination of heat still contained in the deposit after it has come to rest and by the weight of overlying material.
