Earth Science

absolute date
    An estimate of the true age of a mineral or rock based on the rate of decay of radioactive minerals.
active volcano
    A volcano that is erupting; or one that, while not erupting at the present, has erupted within (geologically) recent time and is considered likely to do so in the (geologically) near future.
adiabatic rate
    The rate of temperature change in the atmosphere due to the raising or lowering of an air mass. the "dry adiabatic rate" is 5.5 deg. f. per 1000 feet, while the "wet" rate is 3...
alluvium
  1. A general term for clay, silt, sand, gravel or similar unconsolidated material deposited by a stream or other body of running water.

  2. Gravel, sand, silt, soil, or other material that... аллювий;
andesite
    Intermediate volcanic rocks containing 54 to 62 percent silica and moderate amounts of iron and magnesium. andesite minerals commonly include plagioclase and hornblende, with lesser amounts of mic... андезит;
aquiclude
    An impermeable geologic formation or stratum which will not hold or transmit fluid.
водоупор;
aquitard
    A geologic formation or stratum that significantly retards fluid movement.
проницаемый водоупор;
artificial recharge
    The unnatural addition of surface waters to groundwater. recharge could result from reservoirs, storage basins, leaky canals, direct injection of water into an aquifer, or by spreading water over ...
ash flow
    A turbulent mixture of gas and rock fragments, most of which are ash-sized particles, ejected violently from a crater or fissure. the mass of pyroclastics is normally of very high temperature and ...
ashfall (subaerial)
    Volcanic ash that has fallen through the air. the resulting deposit is usually well sorted and exhibits a finely layered structure.
basalt
  1. Volcanic rock (or magma) that is generally dark in color, contains 45 to 54 percent silica, and is rich in iron and magnesium. an eruption of basaltic magma is generally quiet, and results in ... базальт;
biostratigraphy
    The study and classification of rocks and their history based on their fossil content.
breccia
  1. Angular fragments of material, commonly formed by physical weathering processes or explosive volcanic activity.

  2. Any stone composed of angular fragments embedded and consolidated in ... брекчия;
brittle-ductile transition zone
    The location at depth within the earth`s crust where the temperature and pressure have risen to such a high level that directed stress results in plastic deformation as opposed to fracturing and f...
caldera
    The spanish word for cauldron, a basin-shaped volcanic depression; by definition, at least a mile in diameter. such large depressions are typically formed by the subsidence of volcanoes. crater la... кальдера;
chattermarks
    Erosional features associated with alpine glaciers.
cinder cone
    A volcanic cone built entirely of loose fragmented material (pyroclastics.)
composite volcano
    A steep volcanic cone built by both lava flows and pyroclastic eruptions.
connate water
    Water included in the groundwater which is derrived from the rock itself, as opposed to water which has percolated down from the surface.
continental crust
    Solid, outer layers of the earth, including the rocks of the continents.
continental drift
    The theory that horizontal movement of the earth`s surface causes slow, relative movements of the continents toward or away from one another.
dacite
    Volcanic rock (or lava) that characteristically is light in color and contains 62 to 69 percent silica and moderate amounts of sodium and potassium.
дацит;
debris avalanche
    A flow of unsorted masses of rock and other material downslope under the influence of gravity. water is commonly involved as a catalyst and/or lubricant. for example
detachment plane
    The surface along which a landslide disconnects from its original position.
di-polar
    The arrangement of the hydrogen atoms of a water molecule at 105 deg. across the oxygen results in a slight electrical charge to the molecule. it also results in water molecules looking like micke...
dormant volcano
    This term is used to describe a volcano which is presently inactive but which may erupt again. the major volcanic cones of the cascade mountains (in washington, oregon, and california) are believe...
drift (glacial)
    General term for material deposited by a glacier.
ejecta
    Material that is thrown out by a volcano, including pyroclastic material (tephra) and, from some volcanoes, lava bombs.
erratic (glacial)
    Large rocks or other debris deposited by a glacier, usually in an area far removed from its source. commonly used to indicate a big chunk of debris which is clearly out of place and shouldn`t even...
eruption cloud
    The column of gases, ash, and larger rock fragments rising from a crater or other vent. if it is of sufficient volume and velocity, this gaseous column may reach many miles into the stratosphere, ...
eruptive vent
    The opening through which volcanic material is emitted.
evapotranspiration
    Water used by plants and animals and subsequently returned directly to the atmosphere.
fly-off; эвапотранспирация;
extinct volcano
    A volcano that is not presently erupting and is not likely to do so for a very long time in the future.
flank eruption
    An eruption from the side of a volcano (in contrast to a summit eruption.)
floodplain
    The low relief lands bordering a stream or river, common to the mature and old age stages of stream development. floodplains store excess water in times of high water, and excess sediments in time... пойма;
fossil
    Evidence of past life on earth. can include the preserved hard and soft parts of plants and animals, tracks and burrows, whole organisms preserved intact in amber or tar, and fossilized dung. any ... ископаемое;
fumarole
    A vent or opening through which issue steam, hydrogen sulfide, or other gases. the craters of many dormant volcanoes contain active fumaroles.
фумарола;
geoman
    Your`s truly, and a real geogeek.
geothermal energy
    Energy derived from the internal heat of the earth.
geothermal power
    Power generated by using the heat energy of the earth.
glacial abrasion
    A copmmon mechanical weathering process where rock and debris frozen into the sides and bottom of a glacier act like sandpaper and wear down the bedrock the glacier is mocing across.
glacial ice
    Naturally occurring ice which exhibits internal plastic flow and deformation.
glacial polish
    Polished bedrock surfaces left behind after melting of glacial ice. the polishing is probably due to very fine grained rock flour carried at the base of the ice.
glacial quarrying (plucking)
    A common mechanical weathering process in alpine glaciated terrain where glacial ice frozen into cracks in the bedrock literally "pluck" rock material from the valley floor.
graben
    An elongate crustal block that is relatively depressed (downdropped) between two fault systems.
