A sequence of numbers that approximates the mean distances of the planets from the Sun.
A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.
A rather small volcano built primarily of pyroclastics ejected from a single vent.
An orderly arrangement of atoms.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
A concentration of heat in the mantle capable of producing magma, which in turn extrudes onto Earth’s surface. The intraplate volcanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands is one example.
An igneous rock of ultramafic composition thought to be abundant in the upper mantle.
A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.
