Solutions for Chapter Chapter 49: Nervous Systems
Full solutions for Biology | 8th Edition
A fog formed when warm, moist air is blown over a cool surface.
The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.
A pass between mountain valleys where the headwalls of two cirques intersect.
The study of the universe.
A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.
An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.
Mass per unit volume of a substance, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter
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.
A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.
A tributary valley that enters a glacial trough at a considerable height above its floor.
Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.
Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.
A solid celestial body that accumulated during the first stages of planetary formation. Planetesimals aggregated into increasingly larger bodies, ultimately forming the planets.
A temporary lake in a playa.
Polar (P) air mass
A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.
The ability of a telescope to separate objects that would otherwise appear as one.
The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.
Turbidity current deposit characterized by graded bedding.
The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.
The concept that the processes that have shaped Earth in the geologic past are essentially the same as those operating today
