Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air pressure

    The force exerted by the weight of a column of air above a given point.

  • Degenerate matter

    Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.

  • Discharge

    The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.

  • Exotic stream

    A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.

  • Fissure

    A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.

  • Foreshore

    That portion of the shore lying between the normal high and low water marks; the intertidal zone.

  • Isobar

    A line drawn on a map connecting points of equal atmospheric pressure, usually corrected to sea level.

  • Partial melting

    The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.

  • Plane of the ecliptic

    The imaginary plane that connects Earth’s orbit with the celestial sphere.

  • Polar wandering

    As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.

  • Slab pull

    A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.

  • Solifluction

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

  • Specific gravity

    The ratio of a substance’s weight to the weight of an equal volume of water.

  • Subarctic climate

    A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.

  • Terrace

    A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.

  • Thermal metamorphism

    See Contact metamorphism.

  • Trophic level

    A nourishment level in a food chain. Plant and algae producers constitute the lowest level, followed by herbivores and a series of carnivores at progressively higher levels.

  • Unsaturated zone

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

  • Valence electron

    The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.

  • Wash

    A common term for a desert stream course that is typically dry except for brief periods immediately following a rain.
