Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aquitard

    Impermeable beds that hinder or prevent groundwater movement.

  • Asteroids

    Thousands of small planetlike bodies, ranging in size from a few hundred kilometers to less than a kilometer, whose orbits lie mainly between those of Mars and Jupiter.

  • Bathymetry

    The measurement of ocean depths and the charting of the shape or topography of the ocean floor.

  • Chromosphere

    The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.

  • Filaments

    Dark, thin streaks that appear across the bright solar disk.

  • Frontal wedging

    Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Humus

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

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Isotherms

    Lines connecting points of equal temperature.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Mesocyclone

    An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.

  • Metamorphic rock

    Rocks formed by the alteration of preexisting rock deep within Earth (but still in the solid state) by heat, pressure, and/or chemically active fluids.

  • 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.

  • Shelf break

    The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.

  • Soil horizon

    A layer of soil that has identifiable characteristics produced by chemical weathering and other soil-forming processes.

  • Stress

    The force per unit area acting on any surface within a solid.

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.

  • Urban heat island

    The fact that temperatures within a city are generally higher than in surrounding rural areas.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.
