The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.
Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.
See Pressure tendency.
The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.
The gently sloping submerged portion of the continental margin, extending from the shoreline to the continental slope.
Environmental lapse rate
The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.
An eruption in which lava is extruded from narrow fractures or cracks in the crust.
A cloud with its base at or very near Earth’s surface.
A narrow, sharp-crested ridge formed by the upturned edge of a steeply dipping bed of resistant rock.
A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.
Inclination of the axis
The tilt of Earth’s axis from the perpendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit.
The appearance or quality of light reflected from the surface of a mineral.
A cloud occupying the height range from 2,000 to 6,000 meters.
An end moraine formed as the ice front stagnated during glacial retreat.
Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.
A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.
Any weathering process that tends to produce a spherical shape from an initially blocky shape.
A fault along which the movement is horizontal.
A well-tested and widely accepted view that explains certain observable facts.
