Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Advection

    Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.

  • Albedo

    The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.

  • Anthracite

    A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.

  • Clastic rock

    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.

  • Compressional mountains

    Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.

  • Convergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Deposition

    The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Immature soil

    A soil lacking horizons.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Loess

    Deposits of windblown silt, lacking visible layers, generally buff-colored, and capable of maintaining a nearly vertical cliff.

  • Mountain breeze

    The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.

  • Neutron star

    A star of extremely high density composed entirely of neutrons.

  • Precession

    See Axial precession.

  • Rock cycle

    A model that illustrates the origin of the three basic rock types and the interrelatedness of Earth materials and processes.

  • Soil horizon

    A layer of soil that has identifiable characteristics produced by chemical weathering and other soil-forming processes.

  • Synodic month

    The period of revolution of the Moon with respect to the Sun, or its cycle of phases.

  • Thermocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change in temperature in the vertical dimension.

  • Tornado watch

    A warning issued for areas of about 65,000 square kilometers (25,000 square miles), indicating that conditions are such that tornadoes may develop; it is intended to alert people to the possibility of tornadoes.

  • Wave of oscillation

    A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
