Andean-type plate margin
Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.
The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.
Bowen’s reaction series
A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.
The fuzzy, gaseous component of a comet’s head.
A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.
Mass per unit volume of a substance, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter
A layer of coarse pebbles and gravel created when wind removed the finer material.
The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.
Ice cap climate
A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.
Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.
A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.
A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.
A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.
Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.
One of the two types of dry climate. A marginal and more humid variant of the desert that separates it from bordering humid climates.
The extensively cratered highland areas of the Moon.
The alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide.
A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.
The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.
A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.
