A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.
A final state of evolution for a star, in which all of its energy sources are exhausted and it no longer emits radiation.
A strip of land that extends inland from the coastline as far as ocean-related features can be found.
Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.
A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.
A streamlined asymmetrical hill composed of glacial till. The steep side of the hill faces the direction from which the ice advanced.
A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.
Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.
A thin, gray layer on the surface of the Moon, consisting of loosely compacted, fragmented material believed to have been formed by repeated meteoritic impacts.
Mohorovicˆi´c; discontinuity (Moho)
The boundary separating the crust from the mantle, discernible by an increase in seismic velocity.
A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.
An imaginary volume of air enclosed in a thin elastic cover. Typically it is considered to be a few hundred cubic meters in volume and is assumed to act independently of the surrounding air.
See Axial precession.
A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.
Ground-up rock produced by the grinding effect of a glacier.
A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.
The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.
Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.
An accumulation of rock debris at the base of a cliff.
A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.
