Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Chromosphere

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

  • Convergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • 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.

  • Cosmology

    The study of the universe.

  • Doppler effect

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

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Lahar

    Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.

  • Marine west coast climate

    A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool

  • Microcontinents

    Relatively small fragments of continental crust that may lie above sea level, such as the island of Madagascar, or be submerged, as exemplified by the Campbell Plateau located near New Zealand.

  • Middle-latitude cyclone

    Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.

  • Natural leeves

    The elevated landforms that parallel some streams and act to confine their waters, except during floodstage.

  • Outgassing

    The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.

  • Radial pattern

    A system of streams running in all directions away from a central elevated structure, such as a volcano.

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Supersaturation

    The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.

  • Trench

    An elongated depression in the seafloor produced by bending of oceanic crust during subduction.

  • Turbulent flow

    The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.

  • Unstable air

    Air that does not resist vertical displacement. If it is lifted, its temperature will not cool as rapidly as the surrounding environment, so it will continue to rise on its own.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
