Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anemometer

    An instrument used to determine wind speed.

  • Cepheid variable

    A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.

  • Cyclone

    A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Desalination

    The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.

  • Disconformity

    A type of unconformity in which the beds above and below are parallel.

  • Divergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Frontal wedging

    Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.

  • Highland climate

    Complex pattern of climate conditions associated with mountains. Highland climates are characterized by large differences that occur over short distances.

  • Interface

    A common boundary where different parts of a system interact.

  • Manganese nodules

    Rounded lumps of hydrogenous sediment scattered on the ocean floor, consisting mainly of manganese and iron and usually containing small amounts of copper, nickel, and cobalt.

  • Passive continental margin

    Margins that consist of a continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise. They are not associated with plate boundaries and therefore experience little volcanism and few earthquakes.

  • Perturbation

    The gravitational disturbance of the orbit of one celestial body by another.

  • Pluton

    A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.

  • Positive feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.

  • Radiation fog

    Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.

  • Radioactive decay

    The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Relative humidity

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

  • Scattering

    The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.

  • Stalagmite

    The columnlike form that grows upward from the floor of a cavern.
