Full solutions for Microbiology: An Introduction | 11th Edition
A sedimentary rock composed of angular fragments that were lithified.
The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.
A linear zone along which continental lithosphere stretches and pulls apart. Its creation may mark the beginning of a new ocean basin.
Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.
The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.
An all-embracing term for sediments of glacial origin, no matter how, where, or in what shape they were deposited.
The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.
Humid continental climate
A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.
A sequence of stars on the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, containing the majority of stars, that runs diagonally from the upper left to the lower right.
Negative feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.
A spherical shell composed of comets that orbit the Sun at distances generally greater than 10,000 times the Earth–Sun distance.
A layer beneath the mantle about 2,200 kilometers (1,364 miles) thick that has the properties of a liquid.
A discrete amount (quantum) of electromagnetic energy.
The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.
Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.
The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.
Highest tidal range that occurs near the times of the new and full moons.
The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.
The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
