  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Original horizontality

  • Plucking (quarrying)

    The process by which pieces of bedrock are lifted out of place by a glacier.

  • Right ascension

    An angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox. Used with declination in a coordinate system to describe the position of celestial bodies.

  • Snowfield

    An area where snow persists yearround.

  • Solar constant

    The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.
