A glacier confined to a mountain valley, which in most instances had previously been a stream valley.
Annual temperature range
The difference between the highest and lowest monthly temperature means.
An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.
One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.
Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.
Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
Lines connecting points of equal temperature.
Maritime (m) air mass
An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.
The change of state from a solid to a liquid.
An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.
Monthly mean temperature
The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.
A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.
A temporary lake in a playa.
A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.
Transportation of sediment through a series of leaps or bounces.
A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.
The area where an air mass acquires its characteristic properties of temperature and moisture.
A low-angle reverse fault.
A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.
