A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.
The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.
A sequence of numbers that approximates the mean distances of the planets from the Sun.
A rather small volcano built primarily of pyroclastics ejected from a single vent.
The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.
A coast where land that was formerly below sea level has been exposed either because of crustal uplift or a drop in sea level or both.
The capacity to do work.
The location on Earth’s surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake.
Buoyant plumes of hot, ashladen gases that can extend thousands of meters into the atmosphere.
Any break or rupture in rock along which no appreciable movement has taken place.
A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.
Nonmetallic mineral resource
Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.
The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.
An Earth-centered system of the universe.
A relatively dense dust cloud in interstellar space that is illuminated by starlight.
Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.
In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.
Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.
