Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Barchan dune

    A solitary sand dune shaped like a crescent with its tips pointing downward.

  • Basalt

    A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.

  • Cup anemometer

    See Anemometer.

  • Ecliptic

    The yearly path of the Sun plotted against the background of stars.

  • Hot spot

    A concentration of heat in the mantle capable of producing magma, which in turn extrudes onto Earth’s surface. The intraplate volcanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands is one example.

  • Hygrometer

    An instrument designed to measure relative humidity.

  • Inclination of the axis

    The tilt of Earth’s axis from the perpendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit.

  • Metallic bond

    A chemical bond present in all metals that may be characterized as an extreme type of electron sharing in which the electrons move freely from atom to atom.

  • Mixing ratio

    The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.

  • Plucking (quarrying)

    The process by which pieces of bedrock are lifted out of place by a glacier.

  • Population I

    Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.

  • Pressure tendency

    The nature of the change in atmospheric pressure over the past several hours. It can be a useful aid in short range weather prediction.

  • Radiation

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

  • Saturation

    The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.

  • Slip face

    The steep, leeward slope of a sand dune; it maintains an angle of about 34 degrees.

  • Slump

    The downward slipping of a mass of rock or unconsolidated material moving as a unit along a curved surface.

  • Star dune

    Isolated hill of sand that exhibits a complex form and develops where wind directions are variable.

  • Stock

    A pluton similar to but smaller than a batholith.

  • Swells

    Wind-generated waves that have moved into an area of weaker winds or calm.

  • Troposphere

    The lowermost layer of the atmosphere. It is generally characterized by a decrease in temperature with height.
