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.

  • Climate

    A description of aggregate weather conditions; the sum of all statistical weather information that helps describe a place or region.

  • Comet

    A small body that generally revolves about the Sun in an elongated orbit.

  • Eluviation

    The washing-out of fine soil components from the horizon by downward-percolating water.

  • Fine-grained texture

    A texture of igneous rocks in which the crystals are too small for individual minerals to be distinguished with the unaided eye.

  • Glacial drift

    An all-embracing term for sediments of glacial origin, no matter how, where, or in what shape they were deposited.

  • Ice cap climate

    A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Lightning

    A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.

  • Metamorphism

    The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.

  • Oceanic plateau

    An extensive region on the ocean floor composed of thick accumulations of pillow basalts and other mafic rocks that in some cases exceed 30 kilometers in thickness.

  • Pelagic zone

    Open ocean of any depth. Animals in this zone swim or float freely.

  • Physical environment

    The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.

  • Stream valley

    The channel, valley floor, and sloping valley walls of a stream.

  • Summer solstice

    The solstice that occurs on June 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on December 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Supercontinent

    A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.

  • Supersaturation

    The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.

  • Syncline

    A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.

  • Temperature inversion

    A layer in the atmosphere of limited depth where the temperature increases rather than decreases with height.

  • Thrust fault

    A low-angle reverse fault.
