A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.
Chemical sedimentary rock
Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.
The exchanges of energy and moisture that occur among the atmosphere, hydrosphere, solid Earth, biosphere, and cryosphere.
Cone of depression
A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.
A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.
A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.
See Bright-line spectrum
Fossil organisms that succeed one another in a definite and determinable order, and any time period can be recognized by its fossil content.
Solid particles that serve as cores for the formation of ice crystals.
Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.
An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.
A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.
Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.
Law of conservation of angular momentum
The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.
Maritime (m) air mass
An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.
A solid celestial body that accumulated during the first stages of planetary formation. Planetesimals aggregated into increasingly larger bodies, ultimately forming the planets.
Stars poor in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively old stars found in the halo, globular clusters, or nuclear bulge.
A wind that consistently blows from one direction more than from another.
A relatively dense dust cloud in interstellar space that is illuminated by starlight.
A local wind blowing from the sea during the afternoon in coastal areas.
