The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.
Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.
Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.
A vent in a volcanic area from which fumes or gases escape.
An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.
The fine structure visible on the solar surface caused by convective cells below.
The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.
Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.
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.
A looplike bend in the course of a stream.
A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.
Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.
An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.
The channel, valley floor, and sloping valley walls of a stream.
Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.
A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.
Soils that form on unconsolidated deposits.
A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.
Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.
