The second eon of Precambrian time, following the Hadean and preceding the Proterozoic. It extends between 3.8 billion and 2.5 billion years before the present.
Blowout (deflation hollow)
A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.
The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.
The gently sloping surface at the base of the continental slope.
A climate in which yearly precipitation is not as great as the potential loss of water by evaporation.
The downslope movement of watersaturated, clay-rich sediment. Most characteristic of humid regions.
The variation of an ellipse from a circle.
A mountain valley that has been widened, deepened, and straightened by a glacier.
A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.
A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.
A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.
The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.
Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.
An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.
Sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.
The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.
Sun are striking either the
Tropic of Cancer or the Tropic of Capricorn. Solstice represents the longest or shortest day (length of daylight) of the year.
The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.
A mountain formed of lava and/or pyroclastics.
adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
