Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Breakwater

    A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.

  • Corona

    The outer, tenuous layer of the solar atmosphere.

  • Cross-bedding

    Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.

  • Geyser

    A fountain of hot water ejected periodically.

  • Glaze

    A coating of ice on objects formed when supercooled rain freezes on contact.

  • High

    A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.

  • Isostatic adjustment

    Compensation of the lithosphere when weight is added or removed. When weight is added, the lithosphere will respond by subsiding, and when weight is removed, there will be uplift.

  • Köppen classification

    A system for classifying climates devised by Wladimir Köppen that is based on mean monthly and annual values of temperature and precipitation.

  • Main-sequence stars

    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.

  • Nekton

    Pelagic organisms that can move independently of ocean currents by swimming or other means of propulsion.

  • Nuclear fusion

    The source of the Sun’s energy.

  • Obliquity

    The angle between the planes of Earth’s equator and orbit.

  • Perturbation

    The gravitational disturbance of the orbit of one celestial body by another.

  • Precipitation fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Seawall

    A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.

  • Semidiurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.

  • Spectral class

    A classification of a star according to the characteristics of its spectrum.

  • Steam fog

    Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.

  • Subsoil

    A term applied to the B horizon of a soil profile.
