Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air

    A mixture of many discrete gases, of which nitrogen and oxygen are most abundant, in which varying quantities of tiny solid and liquid particles are suspended.

  • Aneroid barometer

    An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.

  • Chromosphere

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

  • Continental volcanic arc

    Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.

  • Cryovolcanism

    A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.

  • Deep-ocean trench

    See Trench.

  • Deep-sea fan

    A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.

  • Drainage basin

    The land area that contributes water to a stream.

  • Hygroscopic nuclei

    Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.

  • Ionic bond

    A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.

  • Nebular theory

    The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.

  • Occlusion

    The overtaking of one front by another.

  • Outwash plain

    A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.

  • Perched water table

    A localized zone of saturation above the main water table created by an impermeable layer (aquiclude).

  • Porosity

    The volume of open spaces in rock or soil.

  • Psychrometer

    A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.

  • Snowfield

    An area where snow persists yearround.

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.

  • Wave height

    The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.

  • Yazoo tributary

    A tributary that flows parallel to the main stream because a natural levee is present.
