  • 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.

  • Constellation

    An apparent group of stars originally named for mythical characters. The sky is presently divided into 88 constellations.

  • Divide

    An imaginary line that separates the drainage of two streams; often found along a ridge.

  • Equatorial low

    A belt of low pressure lying near the equator and between the subtropical highs.

  • Habit

    Refers to the common or characteristic shape of a crystal, or aggregate of crystals.

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Hurricane

    A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.

  • Jetties

    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.

  • Karst

    A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.

  • Mesocyclone

  • Population I

    Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.

  • Relative dating

    Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.

  • Secondary enrichment

    The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.

  • Submarine canyon

    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.
