The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.
A pattern of cracks that form during cooling of molten rock to generate columns that are generally six-sided.
An isotope resulting from radioactive decay.
The name for all the sciences that collectively seek to understand Earth. It includes geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.
A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.
A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.
The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.
An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.
Law of conservation of angular momentum
The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.
Mercalli intensity scale
See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.
Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.
A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.
Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.
A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.
Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.
See Cinder cone.
Lower limit of perennial snow.
