The weight of water vapor in a given volume of air (usually expressed in GRAMS/M3).
Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.
A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.
Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.
An uninterrupted band of light emitted by an incandescent solid, liquid, or gas under pressure.
The study of the universe.
Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.
Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.
A fault in which the movement is parallel to the dip of the fault.
The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.
A narrow, sharp-crested ridge formed by the upturned edge of a steeply dipping bed of resistant rock.
Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.
Longitudinal (seif dunes)
Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.
The appearance or quality of light reflected from the surface of a mineral.
Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.
The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.
An accumulation of rock debris at the base of a cliff.
Temporary (local) base level
The level of a lake, resistant rock layer, or any other base level that stands above sea level.
A small, very intense cyclonic storm with exceedingly high winds, most often produced along cold fronts in conjunction with severe thunderstorms.
The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
