Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air-mass weather

    The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.

  • Basin

    A circular downfolded structure.

  • Cyclone

    A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Dip-slip fault

    A fault in which the movement is parallel to the dip of the fault.

  • Flood basalts

    Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.

  • Geosphere

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

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Melting

    The change of state from a solid to a liquid.

  • Neritic zone

    The marine-life zone that extends from the low tideline out to the shelf break.

  • Playa

    A flat area on the floor of an undrained desert basin. Following heavy rain, the playa becomes a lake.

  • Playa lake

    A temporary lake in a playa.

  • Population I

    Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.

  • Radioactivity

    The spontaneous emission of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Spring tide

    Highest tidal range that occurs near the times of the new and full moons.

  • Stalagmite

    The columnlike form that grows upward from the floor of a cavern.

  • Thermocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change in temperature in the vertical dimension.

  • Tropic of Capricorn

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees south latitude, marking the southern limit of the Sun’s verticalrays.

  • Urban heat island

    The fact that temperatures within a city are generally higher than in surrounding rural areas.

  • Wave of oscillation

    A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
