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.

  • Cassini division

    A wide gap in the ring system of Saturn between the A ring and the B ring.

  • Chemical sedimentary rock

    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.

  • Chemical weathering

    The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.

  • Crater

    The depression at the summit of a volcano, or that which is produced by a meteorite impact.

  • Crystal settling

    During the crystallization of magma, the earlier-formed minerals are denser than the liquid portion and settle to the bottom of the magma chamber.

  • Deflation

    The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.

  • Desert pavement

    A layer of coarse pebbles and gravel created when wind removed the finer material.

  • Fluorescence

    The absorption of ultraviolet light, which is reemitted as visible light.

  • Isostatic adjustment

    Compensation of the lithosphere when weight is added or removed. When weight is added, the lithosphere will respond by subsiding, and when weight is removed, there will be uplift.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Outgassing

    The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.

  • Pressure gradient

    The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.

  • Refracting telescope

    A telescope that employs a lens to bend and concentrate the light from distant objects.

  • Relative humidity

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

  • Seamount

    An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.

  • Silicon-oxygen tetrahedron

    A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.

  • Steam fog

    Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.

  • Stratosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.

  • White frost

    Ice crystals instead of dew that form on surfaces when the dew point is below freezing.
