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.

  • Anticline

    A fold in sedimentary strata resembling an arch.

  • Arid climate

    See Dry climate.

  • Cepheid variable

    A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.

  • Compressional mountains

    Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.

  • Continental slope

    The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.

  • 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.

  • Drumlin

    A streamlined asymmetrical hill composed of glacial till. The steep side of the hill faces the direction from which the ice advanced.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Equatorial low

    A belt of low pressure lying near the equator and between the subtropical highs.

  • Mountain breeze

    The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.

  • Paleozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale between the eons of the Precambrian and Mesozoic era from about 540 million to 248 million years ago.

  • Porphyritic texture

    An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.

  • Protoplanets

    A developing planetary body that grows by the accumulation of planetesimals.

  • Radiation

    The transfer of energy (heat) through space by electromagnetic waves.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Seismic gap

    A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.

  • Tropic of Cancer

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

  • Vent

    The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.
