Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arctic (A) air mass

    A bitterly cold air mass that forms over the frozen Arctic Ocean.

  • Barometric tendency

    See Pressure tendency.

  • Bed load

    Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.

  • Benthos

    The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.

  • Crevasse

    A deep crack in the brittle surface of a glacier.

  • Cut bank

    The area of active erosion on the outside of a meander.

  • Dune

    A hill or ridge of wind-deposited sand.

  • Earthflow

    The downslope movement of watersaturated, clay-rich sediment. Most characteristic of humid regions.

  • Exfoliation dome

    Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.

  • Flow

    A type of movement common to masswasting processes in which water-saturated material moves downslope as a viscous fluid.

  • Greenhouse effect

    The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.

  • High

    A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.

  • Incised meander

    Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.

  • Interior drainage

    A discontinuous pattern of intermittent streams that do not flow to the ocean.

  • Octet rule

    Atoms combine in order that each may have the electron arrangement of a noble gas; that is, the outer energy level contains eight neutrons.

  • Reflection

    The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.

  • Resolving power

    The ability of a telescope to separate objects that would otherwise appear as one.

  • Right ascension

    An angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox. Used with declination in a coordinate system to describe the position of celestial bodies.

  • Stromatolite

    Structures that are deposited by algae and consist of layered mounds of calcium carbonate.

  • Submergent coast

    A coast with a form that is largely the result of the partial drowning of a former land surface either because of a rise of sea level or subsidence of the crust or both.
