Full solutions for Campbell Biology | 10th Edition
Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.
A pass between mountain valleys where the headwalls of two cirques intersect.
That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.
Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.
The apparent change in wavelength of radiation caused by the relative motions of the source and the observer.
The concept of an Earth-centered universe.
An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.
A mountain valley that has been widened, deepened, and straightened by a glacier.
A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.
A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.
Mercalli intensity scale A 12-point scale developed to evaluate earthquake intensity based on the amount of damage to various structures.
The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.
Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.
Positive feedback mechanism
A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.
A mechanism that may contribute to plate motion. It involves the oceanic lithosphere sliding down the oceanic ridge under the pull of gravity.
An isolated mass of rock standing just offshore, produced by wave erosion of a headland.
A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.
The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.
An isolated, steep-sided, erosional remnant consisting of lava that once occupied the vent of a volcano.
adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
