Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abrasion

    The grinding and scraping of a rock surface by the friction and impact of rock particles carried by water, wind, or ice.

  • Abyssal plain

    Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.

  • Cavern

    A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.

  • Cepheid variable

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

  • Continental drift

    A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.

  • Crust

    The very thin outermost layer of Earth.

  • Eclipse

    The cutting-off of the light of one celestial body by another passing in front of it.

  • Environment

    Everything that surrounds and influences an organism.

  • Eye wall

    The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.

  • Focus (light)

    The point where a lens or mirror causes light rays to converge.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Jovian planet

    The Jupiter-like planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These planets have relatively low densities.

  • Laminar flow

    The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.

  • Magnitude (earthquake)

    The total amount of energy released during an earthquake.

  • Mass number

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

  • Octet rule

    Atoms combine in order that each may have the electron arrangement of a noble gas; that is, the outer energy level contains eight neutrons.

  • Outgassing

    The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.

  • Parcel

    An imaginary volume of air enclosed in a thin elastic cover. Typically it is considered to be a few hundred cubic meters in volume and is assumed to act independently of the surrounding air.

  • Rainshadow desert

    A dry area on the lee side of a mountain range. Many middle-latitude deserts are of this type.

  • Small solar system bodies

    Solar system objects not classified as planets or moons that include dwarf planets, asteroids, comets, and meteoroids.
