Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Advection fog

    A fog formed when warm, moist air is blown over a cool surface.

  • Condensation nuclei

    Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.

  • Crystal form

    See Habit.

  • Dew-point temperature

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

  • Fault

    A break in a rock mass along which movement has occurred.

  • Fine-grained texture

    A texture of igneous rocks in which the crystals are too small for individual minerals to be distinguished with the unaided eye.

  • Heat

    The kinetic energy of random molecular motion.

  • Hydrothermal solution

    The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.

  • Isotope

    Varieties of the same element that have different mass numbers; their nuclei contain the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Meander

    A looplike bend in the course of a stream.

  • Neutron star

    A star of extremely high density composed entirely of neutrons.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Revolution

    The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.

  • Solar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Sun.

  • Stratosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.

  • Subduction

    The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.

  • Tarn

    A small lake in a cirque.

  • Tornado watch

    A warning issued for areas of about 65,000 square kilometers (25,000 square miles), indicating that conditions are such that tornadoes may develop; it is intended to alert people to the possibility of tornadoes.

  • Wave height

    The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.
