Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Climate

    A description of aggregate weather conditions; the sum of all statistical weather information that helps describe a place or region.

  • Dike

    A tabular-shaped intrusive igneous feature that cuts through the surrounding rock.

  • Doppler effect

    The apparent change in wavelength of radiation caused by the relative motions of the source and the observer.

  • Eye wall

    The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.

  • Interstellar matter

    Dust and gases found between stars.

  • Kuiper belt

    A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.

  • Longitudinal (seif dunes)

    Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.

  • Luminosity

    The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.

  • Mineralogy

    The study of minerals.

  • Negative feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.

  • Open system

    One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.

  • 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.

  • Seawall

    A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.

  • Sidereal month

    A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.

  • Streak

    The color of a mineral in powdered form.

  • Suspended load

    The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.

  • Tenacity

    Describes a mineral’s toughness or its resistance to breaking or deforming.

  • Thermosphere

    The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.

  • Transform fault boundary

    A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.

  • Zone of wastage

    The part of a glacier beyond the zone of accumulation where all of the snow from the previous winter melts, as does some of the glacial ice.
