Active continental margin
Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.
A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.
The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.
A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.
Clouds of vertical development
A cloud that has its base in the low-height range but extends upward into the middle or high altitudes.
A front along which a cold air mass thrusts beneath a warmer air mass.
A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.
Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.
A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.
Nonmetallic mineral resource
Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.
The marine-life zone beyond the continental shelf.
One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.
A variable radio source of small size that emits radio pulses in very regular periods.
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.
The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.
An instrument that records earthquake waves.
The area where an air mass acquires its characteristic properties of temperature and moisture.
The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.
Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.
Air flowing horizontally with respect to Earth’s surface.
