Tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere.
Airborne particles and gases that occur in concentrations that endanger the health and well-being of organisms or disrupt the orderly functioning of the environment.
Barred spiral galaxy
A galaxy having straight arms extending from its nucleus.
Chemical sedimentary rock
Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.
An apparent group of stars originally named for mythical characters. The sky is presently divided into 88 constellations.
An imaginary line that separates the drainage of two streams; often found along a ridge.
A belt of low pressure lying near the equator and between the subtropical highs.
Refers to the common or characteristic shape of a crystal, or aggregate of crystals.
The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.
A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.
A pair of structures extending into the ocean at the entrance to a harbor or river that are built for the purpose of protecting against storm waves and sediment deposition.
A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.
An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.
One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.
Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.
Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.
The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.
A seaward extension of a valley that was cut on the continental shelf during a time when sea level was lower, or a canyon carved into the outer continental shelf, slope, and rise by turbidity currents.
Turbidity current deposit characterized by graded bedding.
A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.
