Seismic waves that travel through Earth’s interior.
A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.
The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.
A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.
A type of unconformity in which the beds above and below are parallel.
A type of solid state flow that produces a change in the size and shape of a rock body without fracturing. Occurs at depths where temperatures and confining pressures are high.
A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.
A star of extremely high density composed entirely of neutrons.
Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.
A vertical conduit through which magmatic materials have passed.
The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.
Stars poor in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively old stars found in the halo, globular clusters, or nuclear bulge.
Positive feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.
The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.
Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.
Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.
Periodic change in the elevation of the ocean surface.
The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere.
Ultimate base level
Sea level; the lowest level to which stream erosion could lower the land.
The dominant west-to-east motion of the atmosphere that characterizes the regions on the poleward side of the subtropical highs.
