Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Barchanoid dune

    Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.

  • Bright nebula

    A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.

  • Delta

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

  • Giant (star)

    A luminous star of large radius.

  • Hurricane

    A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.

  • Incised meander

    Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.

  • Inclusion

    A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.

  • Inertia

    A property of matter that resists a change in its motion.

  • Mafic

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

  • Modified

    Mercalli intensity scale A 12-point scale developed to evaluate earthquake intensity based on the amount of damage to various structures.

  • Monthly mean temperature

    The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.

  • pH scale

    A common measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, it is a logarithmic scale ranging from 0 to 14. A value of 7 denotes a neutral solution, values below 7 indicate greater acidity, and numbers above 7 indicate greater alkalinity.

  • Reflection

    The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.

  • Submergent coast

    A coast with a form that is largely the result of the partial drowning of a former land surface either because of a rise of sea level or subsidence of the crust or both.

  • Summer solstice

    The solstice that occurs on June 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on December 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Valence electron

    The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.

  • Vesicular texture

    A term applied to igneous rocks that contain small cavities called vesicles, which are formed when gases escape from lava.

  • Wave refraction

    See Refraction.

  • Zodiac

    A band along the ecliptic containing the 12 constellations of the zodiac.

  • Zooplankton

    Animal plankton.
