Tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere.
The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.
A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.
The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.
The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.
The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.
Sinuous ridge composed largely of sand and gravel deposited by a stream flowing in a tunnel beneath a glacier near its terminus.
A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.
Nearly spherical ice pellets having concentric layers and formed by the successive freezing of layers of water.
A measure of the degree of earthquake shaking at a given locale based on the amount of damage.
Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.
Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.
Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.
An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.
Semidiurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.
The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.
A classification of a star according to the characteristics of its spectrum.
A dark spot on the Sun, which is cool by contrast to the surrounding photosphere.
Wave of translation
The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.
