Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anticyclone

    A high-pressure center characterized by a clockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Celestial sphere

    An imaginary hollow sphere upon which the ancients believed the stars were hung and carried around Earth.

  • Coral reef

    Structure formed in a warm, shallow, sunlit ocean environment that consists primarily of the calcite-rich remains of corals as well as the limy secretions of algae and the hard parts of many other small organisms.

  • Dark nebula

    A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Divergent boundary

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

  • Doppler radar

    In addition to the tasks performed by conventional radar, this new generation of weather radar can detect motion directly and hence greatly improve tornado and severe storm warnings.

  • Eon

    The largest time unit on the geologic time scale, next in order of magnitude above era.

  • Graben

    A valley formed by the downward displacement of a fault-bounded block.

  • 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.

  • Isostasy

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

  • Lava

    Magma that reaches Earth’s surface.

  • Lunar breccia

    A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.

  • Monsoon

    Seasonal reversal of wind direction associated with large continents, especially Asia. In winter, the wind blows from land to sea; in summer, from sea to land.

  • Polar front

    The stormy frontal zone separating air masses of polar origin from air masses of tropical origin.

  • Population I

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

  • Rockslide

    The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.

  • Solar nebula

    The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.

  • Valence electron

    The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.

  • Volatiles

    Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.
