Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute humidity

    The weight of water vapor in a given volume of air (usually expressed in GRAMS/M3).

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Capacity

    The total amount of sediment a stream is able to transport.

  • Chemical sedimentary rock

    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.

  • Granitic composition

    A compositional group of igneous rocks that indicates a rock is composed almost entirely of light-colored silicates.

  • High

    A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.

  • Humid continental climate

    A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.

  • Humus

    Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Inselberg

    An isolated mountain remnant characteristic of the late stage of erosion in an arid region.

  • Intraplate volcanism

    Igneous activity that occurs within a tectonic plate away from plate boundaries.

  • Partial melting

    The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.

  • Playa

    A flat area on the floor of an undrained desert basin. Following heavy rain, the playa becomes a lake.

  • Seafloor spreading

    The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.

  • Seismogram

    The record made by a seismograph.

  • Slump

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

  • Soil

    A combination of mineral and organic matter, water, and air; that portion of the regolith that supports plant growth.

  • Soil profile

    A vertical section through a soil showing its succession of horizons and the underlying parent material.

  • Spectral class

    A classification of a star according to the characteristics of its spectrum.

  • Tarn

    A small lake in a cirque.
