Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal zone

    A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.

  • Backswamp

    A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.

  • Calving

    Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.

  • Columnar joints

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

  • Condensation nuclei

    Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • Deflation

    The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.

  • Equatorial system

    A method of locating stellar objects much like the coordinate system used on Earth’s surface.

  • Hydrothermal solution

    The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.

  • Intraplate volcanism

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

  • Lake-effect snow

    Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.

  • Luminosity

    The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.

  • Piedmont glacier

    A glacier that forms when one or more valley glaciers emerge from the confining walls of mountain valleys and spread out to create a broad sheet in the lowlands at the base of the mountains.

  • Pressure gradient

    The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.

  • Settling velocity

    The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.

  • Sheeting

    A mechanical weathering process characterized by the splitting-off of slablike sheets of rock.

  • Sidereal day

    The period of Earth’s rotation with respect to the stars.

  • Solstice

    The time when the vertical rays of the

  • Steam fog

    Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.

  • Westerlies

    The dominant west-to-east motion of the atmosphere that characterizes the regions on the poleward side of the subtropical highs.
