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

    The weight of water vapor in a given volume of air (usually expressed in GRAMS/M3).

  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Black dwarf

    A final state of evolution for a star, in which all of its energy sources are exhausted and it no longer emits radiation.

  • Cosmological red shift

    Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.

  • Daughter product

    An isotope resulting from radioactive decay.

  • Inner core

    The solid innermost layer of Earth, about 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) in radius.

  • Localized convective lifting

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

  • Mafic

    Igneous rocks with a low silica content and a high iron–magnesium content.

  • Metamorphic rock

    Rocks formed by the alteration of preexisting rock deep within Earth (but still in the solid state) by heat, pressure, and/or chemically active fluids.

  • Mixed tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.

  • Photic zone

    The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.

  • Reflection

    The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.

  • Relative humidity

    The ratio of the air’s watervapor content to its water-vapor capacity.

  • Silicate

    Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.

  • Spring tide

    Highest tidal range that occurs near the times of the new and full moons.

  • Superposition

    In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.

  • Talus

    An accumulation of rock debris at the base of a cliff.

  • Tidal current

    The alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Valence electron

    The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.

  • Weathering

    The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
