Bowen’s reaction series
A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.
Continental (c) air mass
An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.
The tidal current associated with the increase in the height of the tide.
Water in the zone of saturation.
The view that the Sun is at the center of the solar system.
Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.
A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.
A nearshore current that flows parallel to the shore.
A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.
The 2,900-kilometer- (1,800-mile-) thick layer of Earth located below the crust.
Mercalli intensity scale
See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.
Anticyclones that are assumed to occupy the inner polar regions and are believed to be thermally induced, at least in part.
A wind that consistently blows from one direction more than from another.
A variable star that pulsates in size and luminosity.
The layer of rock and mineral fragments that nearly everywhere covers Earth’s surface.
The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.
A soil classification system consisting of six hierarchical categories based on observable soil characteristics. The system recognizes 12 soil orders.
A situation in which the surface position of a front does not move; the flow on either side of such a boundary is nearly parallel to the position of the front.
A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.
