Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute stability

    Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.

  • Base level

    The level below which a stream cannot erode.

  • Bergeron process

    A theory that relates the formation of precipitation to supercooled clouds, freezing nuclei, and the different saturation levels of ice and liquid water.

  • Chemical compound

    A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.

  • Coriolis force (effect)

    The deflective force of Earth’s rotation on all free-moving objects, including the atmosphere and oceans. Deflection is to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Eclipse

    The cutting-off of the light of one celestial body by another passing in front of it.

  • Eye

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

  • Fault

    A break in a rock mass along which movement has occurred.

  • Granitic composition

    A compositional group of igneous rocks that indicates a rock is composed almost entirely of light-colored silicates.

  • Hurricane

    A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Ore

    Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.

  • Pluvial lake

    A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.

  • Red giant

    A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.

  • Shield volcano

    A broad, gently sloping volcano built from fluid basaltic lavas.

  • Stratovolcano

    See Composite cone.

  • Striations (glacial)

    Scratches or grooves in a bedrock surface caused by the grinding action of a glacier and its load of sediment.

  • Thrust fault

    A low-angle reverse fault.

  • Wave of translation

    The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.

  • Zone of wastage

    The part of a glacier beyond the zone of accumulation where all of the snow from the previous winter melts, as does some of the glacial ice.
