Votes
A low-lying area on the Earth's surface in which thick layers of sediment have accumulated. Some basins are bowl-shaped while others are elongate. Basins form through tectonic processes, especially in fault-bordered intermontane areas or in areas where the Earth's crust has warped downwards. They are often a source of valuable oil.

A part of the physical environment, or more generally any physical system, that absorbs some form of matter or energy.

Coral reefs are a long-lasting sink for carbon, which they sequester in their skeletons in the form of calcium carbonate.
