Blowout (deflation hollow)
A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.
Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.
The temperature above which a material loses its magnetization.
Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.

The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.
Temporary (local) base level
The level of a lake, resistant rock layer, or any other base level that stands above sea level.
A layer of water in which there is a rapid change in temperature in the vertical dimension.
A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.
