Charmain from Clemson University said

"If I knew then what I knew now I would not have bought the book. It was over priced and My professor only used it a few times."

Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Beach nourishment

    The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.

  • Cavern

    A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.

  • Chromosphere

    The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.

  • Circle of illumination

    The great circle that separates daylight from darkness.

  • Conformable

    Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.

  • Divergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Element

    A substance that cannot be decomposed into simpler substances by ordinary chemical or physical means.

  • Eruption column

    Buoyant plumes of hot, ashladen gases that can extend thousands of meters into the atmosphere.

  • Isobar

    A line drawn on a map connecting points of equal atmospheric pressure, usually corrected to sea level.

  • Lateral moraine

    A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.

  • Meteorite

    Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.

  • 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.

  • Psychrometer

    A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.

  • Richter scale

    A scale of earthquake magnitude based on the motion of a seismograph.

  • Strata

    Parallel layers of sedimentary rock.

  • Tidal delta

    A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.

  • Transform fault

    A major strike-slip fault that cuts through the lithosphere and accommodates motion between two plates.

  • Unconformity

    A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.

  • Wave refraction

    See Refraction.

  • Weather

    The state of the atmosphere at any given time.
