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

    The weight of water vapor in a given volume of air (usually expressed in GRAMS/M3).

  • Adiabatic temperature change

    Cooling or warming of air caused when air is allowed to expand or is compressed, not because heat is added or subtracted.

  • Beach nourishment

    The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.

  • Chemical sedimentary rock

    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.

  • Chemical weathering

    The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.

  • Corona

    The outer, tenuous layer of the solar atmosphere.

  • Cryovolcanism

    A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.

  • Deposition

    The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.

  • Ephemeral stream

    A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.

  • Eukaryotes

    An organism whose genetic material is enclosed in a nucleus; plants, animals, and fungi are eukaryotes.

  • Geosphere

    The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Kuiper belt

    A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.

  • Paleontology

    The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.

  • Parent material

    The material upon which a soil develops.

  • Sediment

    Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.

  • Sheeting

    A mechanical weathering process characterized by the splitting-off of slablike sheets of rock.

  • Slump

    The downward slipping of a mass of rock or unconsolidated material moving as a unit along a curved surface.

  • Upwelling

    The rising of cold water from deeper layers to replace warmer surface water that has been moved away.

  • Volatiles

    Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.
