Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Calorie

    The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1° C.

  • Coarse-grained texture

    An igneous rock texture in which the crystals are roughly equal in size and large enough so that individual minerals can be identified with the unaided eye.

  • Coastline

    The coast’s seaward edge. The landward limit of the effect of the highest storm waves on the shore.

  • Continuous spectrum

    An uninterrupted band of light emitted by an incandescent solid, liquid, or gas under pressure.

  • Convection

    The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.

  • Disconformity

    A type of unconformity in which the beds above and below are parallel.

  • Dry climate

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

  • Environment

    Everything that surrounds and influences an organism.

  • Incised meander

    Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Melt

    The liquid portion of magma, excluding the solid crystals.

  • Mesocyclone

    An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.

  • Mohorovicˆi´c; discontinuity (Moho)

    The boundary separating the crust from the mantle, discernible by an increase in seismic velocity.

  • Nuclear fusion

    The source of the Sun’s energy.

  • Penumbra

    The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.

  • Photosynthesis

    The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.

  • Prokaryotes

    Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.

  • Pyroclastic

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

  • 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.
