A fold in sedimentary strata resembling an arch.
A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.
Structure formed in a warm, shallow, sunlit ocean environment that consists primarily of the calcite-rich remains of corals as well as the limy secretions of algae and the hard parts of many other small organisms.
A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.
Evolution (Theory of)
A fundamental theory in biology and paleontology that sets forth the process by which members of a population of organisms come to differ from their ancestors. Organisms evolve by means of mutations, natural selection, and genetic factors. Modern species are descended from related but different species that lived in earlier times.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
A thick mass of ice originating on land from the compaction and recrystallization of snow that shows evidence of past or present flow.
The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.
A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.
Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.
One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.
A glacier that forms when one or more valley glaciers emerge from the confining walls of mountain valleys and spread out to create a broad sheet in the lowlands at the base of the mountains.
Plane of the ecliptic
The imaginary plane that connects Earth’s orbit with the celestial sphere.
A chain of thermonuclear reactions by which nuclei of hydrogen are built up into nuclei of helium.
A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.
A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting 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.
Sun are striking either the
Tropic of Cancer or the Tropic of Capricorn. Solstice represents the longest or shortest day (length of daylight) of the year.
A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.
