Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute magnitude

    The apparent brightness of a star if it were viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs (32.6 light-years). Used to compare the true brightness of stars.

  • Aurora

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

  • Barometric tendency

    See Pressure tendency.

  • Climate-feedback mechanism

    Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.

  • Composite cone

    A volcano composed of both lava flows and pyroclastic material.

  • Conditional instability

    Moist air with a lapse rate between the dry and wet adiabatic rates.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Dark nebula

    A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.

  • Environmental lapse rate

    The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.

  • Fissure eruption

    An eruption in which lava is extruded from narrow fractures or cracks in the crust.

  • Frontal fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Mantle

    The 2,900-kilometer- (1,800-mile-) thick layer of Earth located below the crust.

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • Neutron

    A subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom. The neutron is electrically neutral and has a mass approximately that of a proton.

  • Outer core

    A layer beneath the mantle about 2,200 kilometers (1,364 miles) thick that has the properties of a liquid.

  • Parabolic dunes

    The shape of these dunes resembles barchans, except their tips point into the wind; they often form along coasts that have strong onshore winds, abundant sand, and vegetation that partly covers the sand.

  • Recessional moraine

    An end moraine formed as the ice front stagnated during glacial retreat.

  • Runoff

    Water that flows over the land rather than infiltrating into the ground.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.
