The equinox that occurs on September 21–23 in the Northern Hemisphere and on March 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.
A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.
The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.
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.
Diurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.
Dry adiabatic rate
The rate of adiabatic cooling or warming in unsaturated air. The rate of temperature change is 1° C per 100 meters.
See Bright-line spectrum
A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers
The point where a lens or mirror causes light rays to converge.
Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.
A steep-sided hill composed of sand and gravel originating when sediment is collected in openings in stagnant glacial ice.
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.
A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.
The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.
Lowest tidal range, occurring near the times of the first- and third-quarter phases of the Moon.
The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.
The material upon which a soil develops.
Isolated hill of sand that exhibits a complex form and develops where wind directions are variable.
A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.
Tropical rain forest
A luxuriant broadleaf evergreen forest; also, the name given the climate associated with this vegetation.
