The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.
Diurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.
A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.
A belt of low pressure lying near the equator and between the subtropical highs.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.
The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.
The composition of igneous rocks lying between felsic and mafic.
The physical disintegration of rock, resulting in smaller fragments.
A loosely formed group of stars of similar origin.
A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.
Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.
The volume of open spaces in rock or soil.
