Full solutions for Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics | 8th Edition
A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.
An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.
The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.
Continental volcanic arc
Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.
The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.
The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.
Inclination of the axis
The tilt of Earth’s axis from the perpendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit.
An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.
Maritime (m) air mass
An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.
The downslope movement of rock, regolith, and soil under the direct influence of gravity.
The relatively flat submerged zone that extends from the breaker line to the edge of the continental shelf.
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.
The volcanic rock ejected during an eruption, including ash, bombs, and blocks.
The procedure of calculating the absolute ages of rocks and minerals that contain radioactive isotopes.
An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.
Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.
See Composite cone.
Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.
A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.
Zone of accumulation
The part of a glacier characterized by snow accumulation and ice formation. Its outer limit is the snowline.
