A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.
The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.
A method of locating stellar objects much like the coordinate system used on Earth’s surface.
The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.
Igneous activity that occurs within a tectonic plate away from plate boundaries.
Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.
