Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arkose

    A feldspar-rich sandstone.

  • Barrier island

    A low, elongate ridge of sand that parallels the coast.

  • Contact metamorphism

    Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.

  • Desalination

    The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.

  • Divergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Drawdown

    The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.

  • Emission spectrum

    See Bright-line spectrum

  • Humidity

    A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.

  • Inertia

    A property of matter that resists a change in its motion.

  • Laccolith

    A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.

  • Lapse rate (normal)

    The average drop in temperature (6.5° C per kilometer; 3.5° F per 1,000 feet) with increased altitude in the troposphere.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Luminosity

    The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.

  • Mass number

    The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Meteor

    The luminous phenomenon observed when a meteoroid enters Earth’s atmosphere and burns up; popularly called a “shooting star.”

  • Phytoplankton

    Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.

  • Saltation

    Transportation of sediment through a series of leaps or bounces.

  • Spheroidal weathering

    Any weathering process that tends to produce a spherical shape from an initially blocky shape.

  • Unconformity

    A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.

  • Wave of oscillation

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