Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Axial precession

    A slow motion of Earth’s axis that traces out a cone over a period of 26,000 years.

  • Daily mean

    The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Declination (stellar)

    The angular distance north or south of the celestial equator denoting the position of a celestial body.

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Eruption column

    Buoyant plumes of hot, ashladen gases that can extend thousands of meters into the atmosphere.

  • Geocentric

    The concept of an Earth-centered universe.

  • Habit

    Refers to the common or characteristic shape of a crystal, or aggregate of crystals.

  • Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

    See H-R diagram.

  • Immature soil

    A soil lacking horizons.

  • Mafic

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

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Positive feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.

  • Pulsating variable

    A variable star that pulsates in size and luminosity.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Red giant

    A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.

  • Shore

    Seaward of the coast, this zone extends from the highest level of wave action during storms to the lowest tide level.

  • Soil texture

    The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.

  • Subsoil

    A term applied to the B horizon of a soil profile.

  • Temperature

    A measure of the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance; a measure of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.

  • Uniformitarianism

    The concept that the processes that have shaped Earth in the geologic past are essentially the same as those operating today
