Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Barred spiral galaxy

    A galaxy having straight arms extending from its nucleus.

  • Cold front

    A front along which a cold air mass thrusts beneath a warmer air mass.

  • Crystal shape

    See Habit.

  • Dew-point temperature

    The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Earthflow

    The downslope movement of watersaturated, clay-rich sediment. Most characteristic of humid regions.

  • Fissure

    A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.

  • Foliation

    A texture of metamorphic rocks that gives the rock a layered appearance.

  • Greenhouse effect

    The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.

  • Highland climate

    Complex pattern of climate conditions associated with mountains. Highland climates are characterized by large differences that occur over short distances.

  • Immature soil

    A soil lacking horizons.

  • Intraplate volcanism

    Igneous activity that occurs within a tectonic plate away from plate boundaries.

  • Liquefaction

    A phenomenon, sometimes associated with earthquakes, in which soils and other unconsolidated materials containing abundant water are turned into a fluid-like mass that is not capable of supporting buildings.

  • Low cloud

    A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.

  • Magnitude (earthquake)

    The total amount of energy released during an earthquake.

  • Point bar

    A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.

  • Pyroclastic material

    The volcanic rock ejected during an eruption, including ash, bombs, and blocks.

  • Tectonics

    The study of the large-scale processes that collectively deform Earth’s crust.

  • Tropical depression

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

  • Zooplankton

    Animal plankton.
