Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Astronomical unit (AU)

    Average distance from Earth to the Sun; or

  • Barchanoid dune

    Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.

  • Beach face

    The wet, sloping surface that extends from the berm to the shoreline.

  • Collision–coalescence process

    A theory of raindrop formation in warm clouds (above 0° C) in which large cloud droplets (giants) collide and join together with smaller droplets to form a raindrop. Opposite electrical charges may bind the cloud droplets together.

  • Constellation

    An apparent group of stars originally named for mythical characters. The sky is presently divided into 88 constellations.

  • Continental shelf

    The gently sloping submerged portion of the continental margin, extending from the shoreline to the continental slope.

  • Convergent boundary

    A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.

  • Corona

    The outer, tenuous layer of the solar atmosphere.

  • Divergent boundary

    A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.

  • Eye

    A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.

  • Filaments

    Dark, thin streaks that appear across the bright solar disk.

  • Food web

    A group of interrelated food chains.

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Kuiper belt

    A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.

  • Population I

    Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.

  • Radiation fog

    Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.

  • Reflecting telescope

    A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.

  • Rotation

    The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Turbidity current

    A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.
