The scientific study of climate.
A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.
The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.
A climate in which yearly precipitation is not as great as the potential loss of water by evaporation.
A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.
Ice cap climate
A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.
A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.
An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.
Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.
Periodic change in the elevation of the ocean surface.
