Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.
The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.
Circle of illumination
The great circle that separates daylight from darkness.
Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.
Mass per unit volume of a substance, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter
The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.
Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
The kinetic energy of random molecular motion.
The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.
A ridge of till formed when lateral moraines from two coalescing alpine glaciers join.
A cloud occupying the height range from 2,000 to 6,000 meters.
The path of a body in revolution around a center of mass.
Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.
A dry area on the lee side of a mountain range. Many middle-latitude deserts are of this type.
The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.
The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.
The ratio of a substance’s weight to the weight of an equal volume of water.
Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.
Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.
