Deformation that involves the fracturing of rock. Associated with rocks near the surface.
A pass between mountain valleys where the headwalls of two cirques intersect.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
The land area that contributes water to a stream.
A texture of igneous rocks in which the crystals are too small for individual minerals to be distinguished with the unaided eye.

A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.
Ice cap climate
A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.
The movement of surface water into rock or soil through cracks and pore spaces.
Compensation of the lithosphere when weight is added or removed. When weight is added, the lithosphere will respond by subsiding, and when weight is removed, there will be uplift.
A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.
The process by which pieces of bedrock are lifted out of place by a glacier.
A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.
