  • Anemometer

    An instrument used to determine wind speed.

  • Annual temperature range

    The difference between the highest and lowest monthly temperature means.

  • Benioff zone

    Zone of inclined seismic activity that extends from a trench downward into the asthenosphere.

  • Binary stars

    Two stars revolving around a common center of mass under their mutual gravitational attraction.

  • Bode’s law

    A sequence of numbers that approximates the mean distances of the planets from the Sun.

  • Cavern

    A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.

  • Cinder cone

  • Crystal

  • Euphotic zone

    The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.

  • Hot spot

    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.

  • Peridotite

    An igneous rock of ultramafic composition thought to be abundant in the upper mantle.

  • Period

    A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

  • Regolith

    The layer of rock and mineral fragments that nearly everywhere covers Earth’s surface.

  • Residual soil

    Soil developed directly from the weathering of the bedrock below.

  • Secondary pollutants

    Pollutants that are produced in the atmosphere by chemical reactions that occur among primary pollutants.

  • Shield

    A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.

  • Solar winds

    Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.

  • Striations (glacial)

    Scratches or grooves in a bedrock surface caused by the grinding action of a glacier and its load of sediment.

  • Texture

    The size, shape, and distribution of the particles that collectively constitute a rock.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
