Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aerosols

    Tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere.

  • Aurora

    A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.

  • Baymouth bar

    A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.

  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Continental rift

    A linear zone along which continental lithosphere stretches and pulls apart. Its creation may mark the beginning of a new ocean basin.

  • Crystal settling

    During the crystallization of magma, the earlier-formed minerals are denser than the liquid portion and settle to the bottom of the magma chamber.

  • Electromagnetic spectrum

    The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.

  • Eye

    A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.

  • Geosphere

    The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.

  • Groin

    A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.

  • Lapse rate (normal)

    The average drop in temperature (6.5° C per kilometer; 3.5° F per 1,000 feet) with increased altitude in the troposphere.

  • Localized convective lifting

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

  • Oceanic zone

    The marine-life zone beyond the continental shelf.

  • Ray (lunar)

    Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.

  • Residual soil

    Soil developed directly from the weathering of the bedrock below.

  • Strike-slip fault

    A fault along which the movement is horizontal.

  • Surface soil

    The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.

  • Texture

    The size, shape, and distribution of the particles that collectively constitute a rock.

  • Vesicular texture

    A term applied to igneous rocks that contain small cavities called vesicles, which are formed when gases escape from lava.
