Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Annual temperature range

    The difference between the highest and lowest monthly temperature means.

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Bergeron process

    A theory that relates the formation of precipitation to supercooled clouds, freezing nuclei, and the different saturation levels of ice and liquid water.

  • Cepheid variable

    A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.

  • Compressional mountains

    Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.

  • Cyclone

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

  • Dry-summer subtropical climate

    A climate located on the west sides of continents between latitudes 30° and 45°. It is the only humid climate with a strong winter precipitation maximum.

  • Dune

    A hill or ridge of wind-deposited sand.

  • Escape velocity

    The initial velocity an object needs to escape from the surface of a celestial body.

  • Fault creep

    Displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.

  • High cloud

    A cloud that normally has its base above 6,000 meters; the base may be lower in winter and at high-latitude locations.

  • Horn

    A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.

  • Lateral moraine

    A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Moment magnitude

    A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.

  • Pluton

    A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.

  • Refraction

    The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.

  • Solar constant

    The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.

  • Tidal delta

    A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.

  • Zone of saturation

    Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
