The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.
The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.
Coriolis force (effect)
The deflective force of Earth’s rotation on all free-moving objects, including the atmosphere and oceans. Deflection is to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.
Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.
The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.
An imaginary line that separates the drainage of two streams; often found along a ridge.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.
A nearly spherically shaped group of densely packed stars.
See Oceanic ridge system.
Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.
The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.
Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.
The minerals that make up most of the rocks of Earth’s crust.
A layer of soil that has identifiable characteristics produced by chemical weathering and other soil-forming processes.
An eclipse of the Sun.
One of the three main categories of meteorites. This group, as the name implies, is a mixture of iron and silicate minerals.
