Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Acid precipitation

    Rain or snow with a pH value that is less than the pH of unpolluted precipitation.

  • Annual mean temperature

    An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.

  • Arid

    See Desert.

  • Backswamp

    A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.

  • Carbonate group

    Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.

  • Compressional mountains

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

  • Continental volcanic arc

    Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.

  • Earth system science

    An interdisciplinary study that seeks to examine Earth as a system composed of numerous interacting parts or subsystems.

  • External process

    Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.

  • Galactic cluster

    Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.

  • Glassy texture

    A term used to describe the texture of certain igneous rocks, such as obsidian, that contain no crystals.

  • Granules

    The fine structure visible on the solar surface caused by convective cells below.

  • Intrusive

    Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Parsec

    The distance at which an object would have a parallax angle of 1 second of arc (3.26 lightyears).

  • Shield volcano

    A broad, gently sloping volcano built from fluid basaltic lavas.

  • Snowfield

    An area where snow persists yearround.

  • Stable air

    Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.

  • Subtropical high

    Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.

  • Troposphere

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