Adiabatic temperature change
Cooling or warming of air caused when air is allowed to expand or is compressed, not because heat is added or subtracted.
Blowout (deflation hollow)
A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.
An orderly arrangement of atoms.
During the crystallization of magma, the earlier-formed minerals are denser than the liquid portion and settle to the bottom of the magma chamber.
The portion of seafloor that lies between the continental margin and the oceanic ridge system. This region comprises almost 30 percent of Earth’s surface.
Rock deformation in which the rock will return to nearly its original size and shape when the stress is removed.
The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.
A layer in a soil profile.
An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.
An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.
Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.
A front formed when a cold front overtakes a warm front. It marks the beginning of the end of a middle-latitude cyclone.
Passive continental margin
Margins that consist of a continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise. They are not associated with plate boundaries and therefore experience little volcanism and few earthquakes.
The transfer of energy (heat) through space by electromagnetic waves.
The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.
A scale of earthquake magnitude based on the motion of a seismograph.
A local wind blowing from the sea during the afternoon in coastal areas.
The time when the vertical rays of the
A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
A ridge of sand that connects an island to the mainland or to another island.
