A high-pressure center characterized by a clockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.
The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.
A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.
Chemical sedimentary rock
Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.
The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.
A form of condensation best described as a dense concentration of suspended water droplets or tiny ice crystals.
The angular distance north or south of the celestial equator denoting the position of a celestial body.
That portion of the shore lying between the normal high and low water marks; the intertidal zone.
The change of state from a liquid to a solid.
Relates the distance to a galaxy and its velocity.
A measure of the degree of earthquake shaking at a given locale based on the amount of damage.
The appearance or quality of light reflected from the surface of a mineral.
A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.
Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.
A chain of thermonuclear reactions by which nuclei of hydrogen are built up into nuclei of helium.
An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.
Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.
The downward slipping of a mass of rock or unconsolidated material moving as a unit along a curved surface.
A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.
A mineral filling a fracture or fault in a host rock. Such deposits have a sheetlike, or tabular, form.
