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

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

  • Biomass

    The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.

  • Bright-line spectrum

    The bright lines produced by an incandescent gas under low pressure.

  • Columnar joints

    A pattern of cracks that form during cooling of molten rock to generate columns that are generally six-sided.

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Fault

    A break in a rock mass along which movement has occurred.

  • Fault creep

    Displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Mineralogy

    The study of minerals.

  • Radiation

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

  • Radio telescope

    A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.

  • Reflection nebula

    A relatively dense dust cloud in interstellar space that is illuminated by starlight.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Solifluction

    Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.

  • Subarctic climate

    A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.

  • 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.

  • Supersaturation

    The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.

  • Theory

    A well-tested and widely accepted view that explains certain observable facts.

  • Volcano

    A mountain formed of lava and/or pyroclastics.

  • Zone of fracture

    The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
