Thousands of small planetlike bodies, ranging in size from a few hundred kilometers to less than a kilometer, whose orbits lie mainly between those of Mars and Jupiter.
Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.
A form of condensation best described as a dense concentration of suspended water droplets or tiny ice crystals.
A tabular-shaped intrusive igneous feature that cuts through the surrounding rock.
See Glacial drift.
Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.
A term found on some versions of the geologic time scale. It refers to the earliest interval (eon) of Earth history, and ended 4 billion years ago.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
A span on the geologic time scale between the Paleozoic and Cenozoic eras from about 248 million to 65 million years ago.
A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.
The elevated landforms that parallel some streams and act to confine their waters, except during floodstage.
Nonmetallic mineral resource
Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.
A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.
The stormy frontal zone separating air masses of polar origin from air masses of tropical origin.
The eon following the Archean and preceding the Phanerozoic. It extends between about 2,500 million (2.5 billion) and 540 million years ago.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.
Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.
