A solitary sand dune shaped like a crescent with its tips pointing downward.
Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.
The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.
Continental (c) air mass
An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.
The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.
One of three basic cloud forms; also the name given one of the clouds of vertical development. Cumulus are billowy individual cloud masses that often have flat bases.
Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.
A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.
A cliff created by movement along a fault. It represents the exposed surface of the fault prior to modification by weathering and erosion.
Geologic time scale
The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.
The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.
Lines connecting points of equal temperature.
A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.
A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.
The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.
Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.
A fault along which the movement is horizontal.
The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.
Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.
A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.
