sun crosses Earth's equator making night and day almost equal in length all over the Earth; Spring Equinox March 21 and Autumnal Equinox Sept. 22
the process by which wind, water, ice, or gravity transports soil & sediment from one location to another
" a tide that is unusually high or low. Extreme tides are associated with the new & full moons. Extreme tides occur when the Moon, Sun, and Earth are lined up and the combined gravitational pull of the Moon and Sun is the greatest. Extreme tides are commonly called spring tides. "
the time when the tide reaches its highest level
the tendency of an object to keep its state of motion. Moving objects will remain moving and non-moving objects will not begin moving unless acted on by a force.
a year on Earth that has one extra day (February 29). Every 4th year is a leap year.
" a stream of water in the ocean that runs parallel to the shore "
the time when the tide reaches its lowest level.

the shape of the lighted portion of the moon that is visible from Earth's surface
regular movements of large amounts of water in the ocean
the most common wind direction for a region. On the earth, the direction of the prevailing winds are related to the latitude of the region
the amount of time it takes for an object to make one complete rotation around its axis. This is the day length of a planet.
precipitation that reaches the surface of the earth and does not soak in, but rather moves across the surface until it reaches a "permanent" site of surface water, such as a stream, lake, or ocean

either of two times a year when the sun is at its greatest distance from the celestial equator about June 21 (Northern most point on celestial sphere) or Dec. 22 (when it reaches its Southern most point)
a periodic change in sea level that is caused by the rotation of Earth and the gravitational attraction between Earth and the Moon and Sun
total solar eclipse
the disk of the moon completely covers the disk of the sun
the movement of water from one state to another as it circulates through the earth's crust, oceans, and atmosphere. Water evaporates from the surface, rises and cools at higher elevations, condenses as rain or snow, and falls to the surface where it collects in lakes, oceans, soil, and rocks underground.
