The grinding and scraping of a rock surface by the friction and impact of rock particles carried by water, wind, or ice.
An instrument used to determine wind speed.
A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
The gently sloping surface at the base of the continental slope.
That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.
The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.
Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.
The flat, low-lying portion of a stream valley subject to periodic inundation.
A fountain of hot water ejected periodically.
The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.
A sequence of stars on the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, containing the majority of stars, that runs diagonally from the upper left to the lower right.
The Latin name for the smooth areas of the Moon formerly thought to be seas.
A temporary lake in a playa.
In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.
A low-angle reverse fault.
The alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide.
The lowermost layer of the atmosphere. It is generally characterized by a decrease in temperature with height.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.4 to 0.7 micrometer.
An instrument used to determine wind direction.
