Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air mass

    A large body of air that is characterized by a sameness of temperature and humidity.

  • Air-mass weather

    The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.

  • Backswamp

    A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.

  • Barometric tendency

    See Pressure tendency.

  • Cirque

    An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Elliptical galaxy

    A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.

  • Energy

    The capacity to do work.

  • Erosion

    The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.

  • Eye wall

    The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.

  • Inclusion

    A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.

  • Irregular galaxy

    A galaxy that lacks symmetry.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Lunar highlands

    See Terrae.

  • Original horizontality

    Layers of sediments are generally deposited in a horizontal or nearly horizontal position.

  • Outer planet

    See Jovian planet.

  • Star dune

    Isolated hill of sand that exhibits a complex form and develops where wind directions are variable.

  • Stratopause

    The boundary between the stratosphere and the mesosphere.

  • Theory

    A well-tested and widely accepted view that explains certain observable facts.
