Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Beach

    An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Dark-line spectrum

    See Absorption spectrum.

  • Earthflow

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

  • Elastic rebound

    The sudden release of stored strain in rocks that results in movement along a fault.

  • Energy

    The capacity to do work.

  • Fossil succession

    Fossil organisms that succeed one another in a definite and determinable order, and any time period can be recognized by its fossil content.

  • Glacial erratic

    An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.

  • 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.

  • Hogback

    A narrow, sharp-crested ridge formed by the upturned edge of a steeply dipping bed of resistant rock.

  • Middle-latitude cyclone

    Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.

  • Neutron

    A subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom. The neutron is electrically neutral and has a mass approximately that of a proton.

  • Nonmetallic mineral resource

    Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.

  • Playa

    A flat area on the floor of an undrained desert basin. Following heavy rain, the playa becomes a lake.

  • Thunderstorm

    A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.

  • Tropic of Capricorn

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees south latitude, marking the southern limit of the Sun’s verticalrays.

  • Urban heat island

    The fact that temperatures within a city are generally higher than in surrounding rural areas.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.

  • Volcanic bomb

    A streamlined pyroclastic fragment ejected from a volcano while molten.

  • Wave-cut cliff

    A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting
