Full solutions for Microbiology: An Introduction | 11th Edition
A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.
A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.
An igneous rock texture in which the crystals are roughly equal in size and large enough so that individual minerals can be identified with the unaided eye.
Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.
Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.
The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.
A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.
A cloud occupying the height range from 2,000 to 6,000 meters.
The small heavy core of an atom that contains all of its positive charge and most of its mass.
Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.
Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.
The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.
Passively drifting or weakly swimming organisms that cannot move independently of ocean currents. Includes microscopic algae, protozoa, jellyfish, and larval forms of many animals.
Positive feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.
Primary (P) wave
A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.
A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.
Any weathering process that tends to produce a spherical shape from an initially blocky shape.
Any size group of interacting parts that form a complex whole.
Wave of oscillation
A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
