Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anticyclone

    A high-pressure center characterized by a clockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Batholith

    A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.

  • Chinook

    A wind blowing down the lee-ward side of a mountain and warming by compression.

  • Compound

    A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.

  • 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.

  • Fiord

    A steep-sided inlet of the sea formed when a glacial trough was partially submerged.

  • Geyser

    A fountain of hot water ejected periodically.

  • Hubble’s law

    Relates the distance to a galaxy and its velocity.

  • Lahar

    Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.

  • Monthly mean temperature

    The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.

  • Negative feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.

  • Open cluster

    A loosely formed group of stars of similar origin.

  • Paleomagnetism

    The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.

  • Prokaryotes

    Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.

  • Semidiurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.

  • Solar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Sun.

  • Sorting

    The process by which solid particles of various sizes are separated by moving water or wind. Also, the degree of similarity in particle size in sediment or sedimentary rock.

  • Transform fault

    A major strike-slip fault that cuts through the lithosphere and accommodates motion between two plates.

  • Tropical depression

    By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds that do not exceed 61 kilometers (38 miles) per hour.

  • Winter solstice

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