Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Black dwarf

    A final state of evolution for a star, in which all of its energy sources are exhausted and it no longer emits radiation.

  • Circle of illumination

    The great circle that separates daylight from darkness.

  • Continental (c) air mass

    An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.

  • Frost wedging

    The mechanical breakup of rock caused by the expansion of freezing water in cracks and crevices.

  • Highland climate

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

  • Inselberg

    An isolated mountain remnant characteristic of the late stage of erosion in an arid region.

  • Isostasy

    The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.

  • Land breeze

    A local wind blowing from land toward the water during the night in coastal areas.

  • Polar high

    Anticyclones that are assumed to occupy the inner polar regions and are believed to be thermally induced, at least in part.

  • Primary (P) wave

    A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.

  • Protostar

    A collapsing cloud of gas and dust destined to become a star.

  • Rectangular pattern

    A drainage pattern characterized by numerous right-angle bends that develops on jointed or fractured bedrock.

  • Renewable resource

    A resource that is virtually inexhaustible or that can be replenished over relatively short time spans.

  • Ridge push

    A mechanism that may contribute to plate motion. It involves the oceanic lithosphere sliding down the oceanic ridge under the pull of gravity.

  • Sea stack

    An isolated mass of rock standing just offshore, produced by wave erosion of a headland.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Shelf break

    The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.

  • Stationary front

    A situation in which the surface position of a front does not move; the flow on either side of such a boundary is nearly parallel to the position of the front.

  • Transported soil

    Soils that form on unconsolidated deposits.

  • Welded tuff

    A pyroclastic rock composed of particles that have been fused together by the combination of heat still contained in the deposit after it has come to rest and by the weight of overlying material.
