Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aquifer

    Rock or soil through which groundwater moves easily.

  • Artesian well

    A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.

  • Atomic weight

    The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.

  • Barrier island

    A low, elongate ridge of sand that parallels the coast.

  • Climate-feedback mechanism

    Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.

  • Crust

    The very thin outermost layer of Earth.

  • Environmental lapse rate

    The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.

  • Extrusive

    Igneous activity that occurs outside the crust.

  • Geostrophic wind

    A wind, usually above a height of 600 meters (2,000 feet), that blows parallel to the isobars.

  • Hydrogen fusion

    The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.

  • Intermediate composition

    The composition of igneous rocks lying between felsic and mafic.

  • Lateral moraine

    A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Oxbow lake

    A curved lake produced when a stream cuts off a meander.

  • Paradigm

    A theory that is held with a very high degree of confidence and is comprehensive in scope.

  • Photochemical reaction

    A chemical reaction in the atmosphere that is triggered by sunlight, often yielding a secondary pollutant.

  • Small solar system bodies

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

  • Soil texture

    The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.

  • Solar winds

    Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.

  • White frost

    Ice crystals instead of dew that form on surfaces when the dew point is below freezing.
