An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.
Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.
Continental (c) air mass
An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.
The gently sloping surface at the base of the continental slope.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
The tidal current associated with the increase in the height of the tide.
The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.
A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.
Water in the zone of saturation.
Hot spot track
Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.
One of the three main categories of meteorites. This group is composed largely of iron with varying amounts of nickel (5–20 percent). Most meteorite finds are irons.
Marine west coast climate
A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool
A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.
The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.
A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.
The region of the Sun that radiates energy to space. The visible surface of the Sun.
A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.
The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.
A pyroclastic rock composed of particles that have been fused together by the combination of heat still contained in the deposit after it has come to rest and by the weight of overlying material.
