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

    Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.

  • Cinder cone

    A rather small volcano built primarily of pyroclastics ejected from a single vent.

  • Continental slope

    The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.

  • Coral reef

    Structure formed in a warm, shallow, sunlit ocean environment that consists primarily of the calcite-rich remains of corals as well as the limy secretions of algae and the hard parts of many other small organisms.

  • Daily mean

    The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Fissure eruption

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

  • Galactic cluster

    Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.

  • Granules

    The fine structure visible on the solar surface caused by convective cells below.

  • Mafic

    Igneous rocks with a low silica content and a high iron–magnesium content.

  • Mesopause

    The boundary between the mesosphere and the thermosphere.

  • Meteor shower

    Many meteors appearing in the sky caused when Earth intercepts a swarm of meteoritic particles.

  • Open system

    One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.

  • Photosynthesis

    The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.

  • Proterozoic eon

    The eon following the Archean and preceding the Phanerozoic. It extends between about 2,500 million (2.5 billion) and 540 million years ago.

  • Seismogram

    The record made by a seismograph.

  • Spring tide

    Highest tidal range that occurs near the times of the new and full moons.

  • Strata

    Parallel layers of sedimentary rock.

  • Transform fault boundary

    A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.

  • Turbulent flow

    The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.
