Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Col

    A pass between mountain valleys where the headwalls of two cirques intersect.

  • Competence

    A measure of the largest particle a stream can transport; a factor dependent on velocity.

  • Composite cone

    A volcano composed of both lava flows and pyroclastic material.

  • Convergent boundary

    A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.

  • Cup anemometer

    See Anemometer.

  • Dark nebula

    A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.

  • Doppler effect

    The apparent change in wavelength of radiation caused by the relative motions of the source and the observer.

  • Dry-summer subtropical climate

  • Fault-block mountain

    A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.

  • Hygrometer

    An instrument designed to measure relative humidity.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Occluded front
