Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute stability

    Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.

  • Active continental margin

    Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.

  • Advection

    Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.

  • Baymouth bar

    A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.

  • Chromosphere

    The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.

  • Continental rift

    A linear zone along which continental lithosphere stretches and pulls apart. Its creation may mark the beginning of a new ocean basin.

  • Core

    Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.

  • Divergent boundary

    A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.

  • Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

    See H-R diagram.

  • Humid subtropical climate

    A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.

  • Intrusion

    See Pluton.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • 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.

  • Pulsar

    A variable radio source of small size that emits radio pulses in very regular periods.

  • Rapids

    A part of a stream channel in which the water suddenly begins flowing more swiftly and turbulently because of an abrupt steepening of the gradient.

  • Shadow zone

    The zone between 104 and 143 degrees distance from an earthquake epicenter in which direct waves do not arrive because of refraction by Earth’s core.

  • Soil texture

    The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.

  • Ultramafic composition

    Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.

  • Valley breeze

    The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
