Andean-type plate margin
Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.
An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.
A sedimentary rock formed of material deposited from solution by evaporation of water.
Fossil organisms that succeed one another in a definite and determinable order, and any time period can be recognized by its fossil content.
A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
An isolated mountain remnant characteristic of the late stage of erosion in an arid region.
A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.
Igneous rocks with a low silica content and a high iron–magnesium content.
Mercalli intensity scale
See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.
The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the stratosphere and characterized by decreasing temperatures with height.
Mineral groups that lack silicas in their structures and account for less than 10 percent of Earth’s crust.
The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.
A resource that is virtually inexhaustible or that can be replenished over relatively short time spans.
The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.
A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.
Ultimate base level
Sea level; the lowest level to which stream erosion could lower the land.
A mineral filling a fracture or fault in a host rock. Such deposits have a sheetlike, or tabular, form.
