Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Advection fog

    A fog formed when warm, moist air is blown over a cool surface.

  • Air pollutants

    Airborne particles and gases that occur in concentrations that endanger the health and well-being of organisms or disrupt the orderly functioning of the environment.

  • Atom

    The smallest particle that exists as an element.

  • Cirque

    An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.

  • Cirrus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.

  • Disseminated deposit

    Any economic mineral deposit in which the desired mineral occurs as scattered particles in the rock but in sufficient quantity to make the deposit an ore.

  • Dissolved load

    That portion of a stream’s load carried in solution.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • Evapotranspiration

    The combined effect of evaporation and transpiration.

  • Hanging valley

    A tributary valley that enters a glacial trough at a considerable height above its floor.

  • Humid subtropical climate

    A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.

  • Lahar

    Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Mohs scale

    A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.

  • Ozone

    A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.

  • Pangaea

    The proposed supercontinent that 200 million years ago began to break apart and form the present landmasses.

  • Parcel

    An imaginary volume of air enclosed in a thin elastic cover. Typically it is considered to be a few hundred cubic meters in volume and is assumed to act independently of the surrounding air.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Volcanic neck

    An isolated, steep-sided, erosional remnant consisting of lava that once occupied the vent of a volcano.

  • Zone of wastage

    The part of a glacier beyond the zone of accumulation where all of the snow from the previous winter melts, as does some of the glacial ice.
