The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.
The scientific study of the universe; it includes the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies and phenomena.
The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.
See Pressure tendency.
A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.
See Absorption spectrum.
A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.
The combined effect of evaporation and transpiration.
See Terrestrial planets.
A discontinuous pattern of intermittent streams that do not flow to the ocean.
The part of the mantle that extends from the core–mantle boundary to a depth of 660 kilometers.
An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.
The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.
The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.
Stars poor in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively old stars found in the halo, globular clusters, or nuclear bulge.
A strong narrow surface or nearsurface current of short duration and high speed flowing seaward through the breaker zone at nearly right angles to the shore. It represents the return to the ocean of water that has been piled up on the shore by incoming waves.
The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.
The ratio of a substance’s weight to the weight of an equal volume of water.
The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.
An opening bored into the zone of saturation.
