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.

  • Clouds of vertical development

    A cloud that has its base in the low-height range but extends upward into the middle or high altitudes.

  • Cutoff

    A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Impact craters

    Depressions that are the result of collisions with bodies such as asteroids and comets.

  • La Niña

    An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Meteorology

    The scientific study of the atmosphere and atmospheric phenomena; the study of weather and climate.

  • Monocline

    A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.

  • Numerical date

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

  • Piedmont glacier

    A glacier that forms when one or more valley glaciers emerge from the confining walls of mountain valleys and spread out to create a broad sheet in the lowlands at the base of the mountains.

  • Relative humidity

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

  • Seawall

    A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.

  • Soil horizon

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

  • Specific gravity

    The ratio of a substance’s weight to the weight of an equal volume of water.

  • Stalactite

    The icicle-like structure that hangs from the ceiling of a cavern.

  • Thermocline

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

  • Transpiration

    The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.

  • Visible light

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.4 to 0.7 micrometer.
