Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aneroid barometer

    An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.

  • Chemical compound

    A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.

  • Dry-summer subtropical climate

    A climate located on the west sides of continents between latitudes 30° and 45°. It is the only humid climate with a strong winter precipitation maximum.

  • Dwarf planets

    Celestial bodies that orbit stars, massive enough to be spherical but have not cleared their neighboring regions of planetesimals.

  • Eye wall

    The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.

  • Hydrogen fusion

    The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.

  • Ionic bond

    A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Liquefaction

    A phenomenon, sometimes associated with earthquakes, in which soils and other unconsolidated materials containing abundant water are turned into a fluid-like mass that is not capable of supporting buildings.

  • Nonsilicates

    Mineral groups that lack silicas in their structures and account for less than 10 percent of Earth’s crust.

  • Numerical date

    Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.

  • Oceanic zone

    The marine-life zone beyond the continental shelf.

  • Pluton

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

  • Population II

    Stars poor in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively old stars found in the halo, globular clusters, or nuclear bulge.

  • Pyroclastic

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

  • Radio telescope

    A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.

  • Radiometric dating

    The procedure of calculating the absolute ages of rocks and minerals that contain radioactive isotopes.

  • Sill

    A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.

  • Spectroscopy

    The study of spectra.

  • Supergiant

    A very large star of high luminosity.
