Supercooled → exposed of submarine landforms by a falling sea level or a rising of the crust
Shoreline → landward of sand beaches, such as Galveston, usually fin a narrow belt of dunes in the form of irregularly shaped hills and depressions; irregularly shaped sand dunes typically found adjacent to beaches on lowlying coasts and bearing a partial cover of plants
Adiabatic process → change of temperature within a gas because of compression or exmpansion, without gain or loss of heat form the outside. Therefore, expansion always results in cooling and compression results in warming
Saltation → sediment transport in which particles are moved forward in a series of short leaps or bounces
