Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.
A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.
The equinox that occurs on September 21–23 in the Northern Hemisphere and on March 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.
A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.
A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.
A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.
A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.
A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.
Localized convective lifting
Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.
A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.
A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.
Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.
The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.
A part of a stream channel in which the water suddenly begins flowing more swiftly and turbulently because of an abrupt steepening of the gradient.
Metamorphism associated with large-scale mountain-building processes.
The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.
The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.
Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.
Transform fault boundary
A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.
