Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Dew-point temperature

    The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.

  • Distributary

    A section of a stream that leaves the main flow.

  • Hurricane

    A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.

  • Hygrometer

    An instrument designed to measure relative humidity.

  • Irregular galaxy

    A galaxy that lacks symmetry.

  • Magma

    A body of molten rock found at depth, including any dissolved gases and crystals.

  • Mantle

    The 2,900-kilometer- (1,800-mile-) thick layer of Earth located below the crust.

  • Outer core

    A layer beneath the mantle about 2,200 kilometers (1,364 miles) thick that has the properties of a liquid.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Point bar

    A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.

  • 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.

  • Prevailing wind

    A wind that consistently blows from one direction more than from another.

  • Radioactive decay

    The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Sea breeze

    A local wind blowing from the sea during the afternoon in coastal areas.

  • Subtropical high

    Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.

  • Supersaturation

    The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.

  • Tenacity

    Describes a mineral’s toughness or its resistance to breaking or deforming.

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.

  • Zone of accumulation

    The part of a glacier characterized by snow accumulation and ice formation. Its outer limit is the snowline.
