Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abrasion

    The grinding and scraping of a rock surface by the friction and impact of rock particles carried by water, wind, or ice.

  • Density

    Mass per unit volume of a substance, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter

  • Elements of weather and climate

    Those quantities or properties of the atmosphere that are measured regularly and that are used to express the nature of weather and climate.

  • Emergent coast

    A coast where land that was formerly below sea level has been exposed either because of crustal uplift or a drop in sea level or both.

  • Foliation

    A texture of metamorphic rocks that gives the rock a layered appearance.

  • Freezing

    The change of state from a liquid to a solid.

  • Heliocentric

    The view that the Sun is at the center of the solar system.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Mesopause

    The boundary between the mesosphere and the thermosphere.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Outer planet

    See Jovian planet.

  • Rock-forming minerals

    The minerals that make up most of the rocks of Earth’s crust.

  • Seismic waves

    A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.

  • Seismograph

    An instrument that records earthquake waves.

  • Settling velocity

    The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.

  • Source region

    The area where an air mass acquires its characteristic properties of temperature and moisture.

  • Stock

    A pluton similar to but smaller than a batholith.

  • Supercontinent cycle

    The idea that the rifting and dispersal of one supercontinent is followed by a long period during which the fragments gradually reassemble into a new supercontinent.

  • Tundra climate

    Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.

  • Zooplankton

    Animal plankton.
