Smaller earthquakes that follow the main earthquake.
Banded iron formations
A finely layered iron and silica-rich (chert) layer deposited mainly during the Precambrian.
A rather small volcano built primarily of pyroclastics ejected from a single vent.
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.
A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.
A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.
The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.
Fossil organisms that succeed one another in a definite and determinable order, and any time period can be recognized by its fossil content.
A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.
Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.
Mean solar day
The average time between two passages of the Sun across the local celestial meridian.
Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.
A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.
An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.
An isolated mass of rock standing just offshore, produced by wave erosion of a headland.
A mechanical weathering process characterized by the splitting-off of slablike sheets of rock.
The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.
Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.
A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.
Ice crystals instead of dew that form on surfaces when the dew point is below freezing.
