A fog formed when warm, moist air is blown over a cool surface.
The gaseous portion of a planet; the planet’s envelope of air. One of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.
A solitary sand dune shaped like a crescent with its tips pointing downward.
That portion of a stream’s load carried in solution.
The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.
A luminous star of large radius.
A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.
A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.
The composition of igneous rocks lying between felsic and mafic.
An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.
All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.
A volcanic glass of felsic composition.
The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.
Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.
The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.
The minerals that make up most of the rocks of Earth’s crust.
A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.
The zone between 104 and 143 degrees distance from an earthquake epicenter in which direct waves do not arrive because of refraction by Earth’s core.
A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.
