An unconformity in which the strata below dip at an angle different from that of the beds above.
Thousands of small planetlike bodies, ranging in size from a few hundred kilometers to less than a kilometer, whose orbits lie mainly between those of Mars and Jupiter.
A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
An imaginary line that separates the drainage of two streams; often found along a ridge.
A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.
The absorption of ultraviolet light, which is reemitted as visible light.
A succession of organisms in an ecological community through which food energy is transferred from producers through herbivores and on to one or more carnivores.
An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.
Longitudinal (seif dunes)
Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
Mean solar day
The average time between two passages of the Sun across the local celestial meridian.
A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.
Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.
The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.
The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.
See Energy levels.
Rock formed from the weathered products of preexisting rocks that have been transported, deposited, and lithified.
A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.
See Contact metamorphism.
The dominant west-to-east motion of the atmosphere that characterizes the regions on the poleward side of the subtropical highs.
