The scientific study of the universe; it includes the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies and phenomena.
A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.
The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.
Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.
A circulation pattern characterized by a light wind blowing into a city from the surrounding countryside. It is best developed on clear and otherwise calm nights when the urban heat island is most pronounced.
The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.
The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.
A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.
The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.
Scratches and grooves on bedrock caused by glacial abrasion.
Nearly spherical ice pellets having concentric layers and formed by the successive freezing of layers of water.
Relatively small fragments of continental crust that may lie above sea level, such as the island of Madagascar, or be submerged, as exemplified by the Campbell Plateau located near New Zealand.
The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.
Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.
The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.
Soil developed directly from the weathering of the bedrock below.
The study of earthquakes and seismic waves.
A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.
Zone of saturation
Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
