The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.
A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.
The marine life zone that includes any seabottom surface regardless of its distance from shore.
A wind blowing down the lee-ward side of a mountain and warming by compression.
Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.
Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.
The zone of beach that extends from the low-tide shoreline seaward to where waves break at low tide.
A chemical reaction in the atmosphere that is triggered by sunlight, often yielding a secondary pollutant.
See Lithospheric plate.
A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.
The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.
The line that marks the contact between land and sea. It migrates up and down as the tide rises and falls.
A soil classification system consisting of six hierarchical categories based on observable soil characteristics. The system recognizes 12 soil orders.
A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.
A seaward extension of a valley that was cut on the continental shelf during a time when sea level was lower, or a canyon carved into the outer continental shelf, slope, and rise by turbidity currents.
A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.
