Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Calving

    Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Continental margin

    That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.

  • Daily temperature range

    The difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Deformation

    General term for the processes of folding, faulting, shearing, compression, or extension of rocks as the result of various natural forces.

  • Diffused light

    Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.

  • Doppler radar

    In addition to the tasks performed by conventional radar, this new generation of weather radar can detect motion directly and hence greatly improve tornado and severe storm warnings.

  • Equinox

    The time when the vertical rays of the Sun are striking the equator. The length of daylight and darkness is equal at all latitudes at equinox.

  • Food web

    A group of interrelated food chains.

  • Ice cap climate

    A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

  • Inclusion

    A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.

  • Kame

    A steep-sided hill composed of sand and gravel originating when sediment is collected in openings in stagnant glacial ice.

  • Luminosity

    The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.

  • Photic zone

    The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.

  • Primary pollutants

    Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.

  • Radiation

    The transfer of energy (heat) through space by electromagnetic waves.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Texture

    The size, shape, and distribution of the particles that collectively constitute a rock.

  • Tropic of Cancer

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees north latitude, marking the northern limit of the Sun’s vertical rays.

  • Unsaturated zone

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