A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.
The place in the orbit of a planet where the planet is farthest from the Sun.
Clouds of vertical development
A cloud that has its base in the low-height range but extends upward into the middle or high altitudes.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.
The variation in the rate and degree of weathering caused by such factors as mineral makeup, degree of jointing, and climate.
A cloud with its base at or very near Earth’s surface.
The mechanical breakup of rock caused by the expansion of freezing water in cracks and crevices.
The kinetic energy of random molecular motion.
A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.
Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.
See Energy levels.
A variable star that pulsates in size and luminosity.
Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.
The ability of a telescope to separate objects that would otherwise appear as one.
A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.
A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.
The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.
A major strike-slip fault that cuts through the lithosphere and accommodates motion between two plates.
