Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air

  • Andean-type plate margin

    Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.

  • Annual mean temperature

    An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.

  • Continuous spectrum

    An uninterrupted band of light emitted by an incandescent solid, liquid, or gas under pressure.

  • Crater

    The depression at the summit of a volcano, or that which is produced by a meteorite impact.

  • Cyclone

    A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Eye

    A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.

  • Half-life

    The time required for one-half of the atoms of a radioactive substance to decay.

  • Inclination of the axis

    The tilt of Earth’s axis from the perpendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit.

  • Ionic bond

    A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Mineral resource

    All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.

  • Ozone

  • Point bar

    A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.

    The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.

  • Richter scale

    A scale of earthquake magnitude based on the motion of a seismograph.

  • Seismograph

    An instrument that records earthquake waves.

  • Silicate

    Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.
