Andean-type plate margin
Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.
An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.
Establishing the equivalence of rocks of similar age in different areas.
The very thin outermost layer of Earth.
An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.
The flat, low-lying portion of a stream valley subject to periodic inundation.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
A valley formed by the downward displacement of a fault-bounded block.
A compositional group of igneous rocks that indicates a rock is composed almost entirely of light-colored silicates.
The kinetic energy of random molecular motion.
Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.
Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.
A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.
Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.
The proposed supercontinent that 200 million years ago began to break apart and form the present landmasses.
The radioactive isotope of carbon, which is produced continuously in the atmosphere and is used in dating events from the very recent geologic past (the last few tens of thousands of years).
A scale of earthquake magnitude based on the motion of a seismograph.
The boundary between the stratosphere and the mesosphere.
See Contact metamorphism.
A mineral filling a fracture or fault in a host rock. Such deposits have a sheetlike, or tabular, form.
