The scientific study of the universe; it includes the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies and phenomena.
The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.
A front along which a cold air mass thrusts beneath a warmer air mass.
The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.
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.
Elements of weather and climate
Those quantities or properties of the atmosphere that are measured regularly and that are used to express the nature of weather and climate.
The view that the Sun is at the center of the solar system.
Ice cap climate
A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.
Varieties of the same element that have different mass numbers; their nuclei contain the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons.
The 2,900-kilometer- (1,800-mile-) thick layer of Earth located below the crust.
A star that explosively increases in brightness.
Oceanic ridge system
A continuous elevated zone on the floor of all the major ocean basins and varying in width from 500 to 5,000 kilometers (300–3,000 miles). The rifts at the crests of ridges represent divergent plate boundaries.
Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.
A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.
A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.
An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.
See Divergent boundary.
Sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.
The rising of cold water from deeper layers to replace warmer surface water that has been moved away.
A tributary that flows parallel to the main stream because a natural levee is present.
