Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute magnitude

    The apparent brightness of a star if it were viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs (32.6 light-years). Used to compare the true brightness of stars.

  • Anemometer

    An instrument used to determine wind speed.

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Conglomerate

    A sedimentary rock composed of rounded, gravel-size particles.

  • Continental (c) air mass

    An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.

  • Cross-cutting

    A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.

  • Declination (stellar)

    The angular distance north or south of the celestial equator denoting the position of a celestial body.

  • Dip-slip fault

    A fault in which the movement is parallel to the dip of the fault.

  • Dry climate

    A climate in which yearly precipitation is not as great as the potential loss of water by evaporation.

  • Fossil

    The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.

  • Frontal fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Lapse rate (normal)

    The average drop in temperature (6.5° C per kilometer; 3.5° F per 1,000 feet) with increased altitude in the troposphere.

  • 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.

  • Mercury barometer

    A mercury-filled glass tube in which the height of the mercury column is a measure of air pressure.

  • Perihelion

    The point in the orbit of a planet where it is closest to the Sun.

  • Phases of the Moon

    The progression of changes in the Moon’s appearance during the month.

  • Snowfield

    An area where snow persists yearround.

  • Solar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Sun.

  • System

    Any size group of interacting parts that form a complex whole.

  • 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.
