Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aurora

    A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.

  • Bright-line spectrum

    The bright lines produced by an incandescent gas under low pressure.

  • 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.

  • Coriolis force (effect)

    The deflective force of Earth’s rotation on all free-moving objects, including the atmosphere and oceans. Deflection is to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Dome

    A roughly circular upfolded structure similar to an anticline.

  • Glassy texture

    A term used to describe the texture of certain igneous rocks, such as obsidian, that contain no crystals.

  • Isostasy

    The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Playa

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

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Reflection

    The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.

  • Reflection nebula

    A relatively dense dust cloud in interstellar space that is illuminated by starlight.

  • Solifluction

    Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.

  • Sorting

    The process by which solid particles of various sizes are separated by moving water or wind. Also, the degree of similarity in particle size in sediment or sedimentary rock.

  • Steam fog

    Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.

  • Sublimation

    The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.

  • Tidal flat

    A marshy or muddy area that is covered and uncovered by the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Tropic of Cancer

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees north latitude, marking the northern limit of the Sun’s vertical rays.

  • Tundra climate

    Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.

  • Wave height

    The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.
