Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.
A high-pressure center characterized by a clockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.
Common term for sand and gravel deposits in a stream channel.
Deformation that involves the fracturing of rock. Associated with rocks near the surface.
An imaginary hollow sphere upon which the ancients believed the stars were hung and carried around Earth.
The exchanges of energy and moisture that occur among the atmosphere, hydrosphere, solid Earth, biosphere, and cryosphere.
Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.
A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.
That portion of a stream’s load carried in solution.
The initial velocity an object needs to escape from the surface of a celestial body.
The process of converting a liquid to a gas.
The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.
Any break or rupture in rock along which no appreciable movement has taken place.
A part of a stream channel in which the water suddenly begins flowing more swiftly and turbulently because of an abrupt steepening of the gradient.
A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.
A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.
Frozen or semifrozen rain formed when raindrops freeze as they pass through a layer of cold air.
The steep, leeward slope of a sand dune; it maintains an angle of about 34 degrees.
Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.
