A massive star that has collapsed to such a small volume that its gravity prevents the escape of all radiation.
That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.
The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.
Dry adiabatic rate
The rate of adiabatic cooling or warming in unsaturated air. The rate of temperature change is 1° C per 100 meters.
The flat, low-lying portion of a stream valley subject to periodic inundation.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.
A thin, gray layer on the surface of the Moon, consisting of loosely compacted, fragmented material believed to have been formed by repeated meteoritic impacts.
A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.
Mohorovicˆi´c; discontinuity (Moho)
The boundary separating the crust from the mantle, discernible by an increase in seismic velocity.
The overtaking of one front by another.
A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.
The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.
The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.
A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.
A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.
A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.
The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.
A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.
