Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Albedo

    The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.

  • Aurora

    A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.

  • Bowen’s reaction series

    A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.

  • Comet

    A small body that generally revolves about the Sun in an elongated orbit.

  • Gondwanaland

    The southern portion of Pangaea consisting of South America, Africa, Australia, India, and Antarctica.

  • Hanging valley

    A tributary valley that enters a glacial trough at a considerable height above its floor.

  • Hydrogen fusion

    The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.

  • Jet stream

    Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.

  • Laccolith

    A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • 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.

  • Nonmetallic mineral resource

    Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Pyroclastic material

    The volcanic rock ejected during an eruption, including ash, bombs, and blocks.

  • Rotation

    The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.

  • 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.

  • Thunderstorm

    A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.

  • Wave height

    The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.

  • Wave-cut platform

    A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.

  • Wind

    Air flowing horizontally with respect to Earth’s surface.
