Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.
A solitary sand dune shaped like a crescent with its tips pointing downward.
A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.
The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.
The name given to the periodic warming of the ocean that occurs in the central and eastern Pacific. A major El Niño episode can cause extreme weather in many parts of the world.
A negatively charged subatomic particle that has a negligible mass and is found outside an atom’s nucleus.
An eruption in which lava is extruded from narrow fractures or cracks in the crust.
The mechanical breakup of rock caused by the expansion of freezing water in cracks and crevices.
A sediment layer that is characterized by a decrease in sediment size from bottom to top.
The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.
A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.
Magma that reaches Earth’s surface.
The process of generating more than one rock type from a single magma.
A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.
The path of a body in revolution around a center of mass.
See Lithospheric plate.
Drops of water that fall from clouds that have a diameter of at least 0.5 millimeter (0.02 inch).
A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
Transportation of sediment through a series of leaps or bounces.
That part of the craton that is mantled by relatively undeformed sedimentary rocks and underlain by a basement complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks.
