Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arid

    See Desert.

  • Cumulus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also the name given one of the clouds of vertical development. Cumulus are billowy individual cloud masses that often have flat bases.

  • Cut bank

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

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Drainage basin

    The land area that contributes water to a stream.

  • Energy levels

    Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.

  • Esker

    Sinuous ridge composed largely of sand and gravel deposited by a stream flowing in a tunnel beneath a glacier near its terminus.

  • Focal length

    The distance from the lens to the point where it focuses parallel rays of light.

  • Geosphere

    The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.

  • Intraplate volcanism

    Igneous activity that occurs within a tectonic plate away from plate boundaries.

  • Isostatic adjustment

    Compensation of the lithosphere when weight is added or removed. When weight is added, the lithosphere will respond by subsiding, and when weight is removed, there will be uplift.

  • Joint

    A fracture in rock along which there has been no movement.

  • Loess

    Deposits of windblown silt, lacking visible layers, generally buff-colored, and capable of maintaining a nearly vertical cliff.

  • Magnetometer

    A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.

  • Metallic bond

    A chemical bond present in all metals that may be characterized as an extreme type of electron sharing in which the electrons move freely from atom to atom.

  • Neap tide

    Lowest tidal range, occurring near the times of the first- and third-quarter phases of the Moon.

  • Photosphere

    The region of the Sun that radiates energy to space. The visible surface of the Sun.

  • Solar nebula

    The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.

  • Temperature

    A measure of the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance; a measure of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.

  • Tundra climate

    Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.
