Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute magnitude

    The apparent brightness of a star if it were viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs (32.6 light-years). Used to compare the true brightness of stars.

  • Andean-type plate margin

    Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.

  • Arid

    See Desert.

  • Berm

    The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.

  • Bowen’s reaction series

    A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.

  • Crystal form

    See Habit.

  • Daily mean

    The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • Ephemeral stream

    A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.

  • Erosion

    The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.

  • Hot spring

    A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.

  • Immature soil

    A soil lacking horizons.

  • Ionosphere

    A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.

  • Longshore current

    A nearshore current that flows parallel to the shore.

  • Piedmont glacier

    A glacier that forms when one or more valley glaciers emerge from the confining walls of mountain valleys and spread out to create a broad sheet in the lowlands at the base of the mountains.

  • Plate

    See Lithospheric plate.

  • Playa lake

    A temporary lake in a playa.

  • Precipitation fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Sleet

    Frozen or semifrozen rain formed when raindrops freeze as they pass through a layer of cold air.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
