Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aquifer

    Rock or soil through which groundwater moves easily.

  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Bright nebula

    A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.

  • Chinook

    A wind blowing down the lee-ward side of a mountain and warming by compression.

  • Convergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Density

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

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Emission spectrum

    See Bright-line spectrum

  • Front

    The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.

  • Inner core

    The solid innermost layer of Earth, about 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) in radius.

  • Penumbra

    The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.

  • 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.

  • Snowline

    Lower limit of perennial snow.

  • Solifluction

    Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.

  • Spreading center

    See Divergent boundary.

  • Striations (glacial)

    Scratches or grooves in a bedrock surface caused by the grinding action of a glacier and its load of sediment.

  • Terminal moraine

    The end moraine marking the farthest advance of a glacier.

  • Theory

    A well-tested and widely accepted view that explains certain observable facts.

  • Wave refraction

    See Refraction.

  • Wave-cut platform

    A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.
