   A-horizon  
Subject: The Earth
    A-horizon The uppermost soil horizon (topsoil) made up of a mixture of organic material (up to 30% humus) and minerals. The A-horizon becomes coarser as you move downward due to the water washing through the soil and carrying away the fine particles.

Subject: Remote Sensing
    Airborne Imaging Radar. Ref: Remote Sensing Glossary Reference Information for Virtual Nebraska
 
 
  
   air density  
Subject: The Earth
    See density.
 
 
  
   Air Drilling  
Subject: Resources & Reserves
    Rotary drilling using high-velocity air insertead of conventional drilling mud. It is unsuitable where significant volumes of water may be encountered or where natural gas may create an explosive mixture. Reference: R.L. Bates & J.A. Jackson, DICTIONARY OF GEOLOGICAL TERMS, Third Edition, American Geological Institute, 1983.
 
 
  
   air glow  
Subject: The Earth
    A faint glow of light emitted by excited gases in the upper atmosphere. Air glow is much fainter than the aurora.
 
 
  
   air mass  
Subject: The Earth
    A large body of air that has similar horizontal temperature and moisture characteristics.An air mass, by definition, is a large dome of air which has similar horizontal temperature and moisture characteristics. Often, a front separates two different air masses. Fronts are very narrow zones of transition. In other words, temperatures can change dramatically with short horizontal distances near fronts. Fronts are usually anywhere from 10 kilometers to hundreds of kilometers wide, while air masses can be thousands of kilometers wide.
 
 
  
   Air Mass   
Subject: Geography
    A body of air whose temperature and humidity characteristics remain relatively constant over a horizontal distance of hundreds to thousands of kilometers. Air masses develop their climatic characteristics by remaining stationary over a source region for a number of days. Air masses are classified according to their temperature and humidity characteristics.

   air mass weather  
Subject: The Earth
    A persistent type of weather that may last for several days (up to a week or more). It occurs when an area comes under the influence of a particular air mass.
