Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Autumnal equinox

    The equinox that occurs on September 21–23 in the Northern Hemisphere and on March 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Conduit

    A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.

  • Continental slope

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

  • Deep-sea fan

    A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.

  • Diurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.

  • Dry adiabatic rate

    The rate of adiabatic cooling or warming in unsaturated air. The rate of temperature change is 1° C per 100 meters.

  • Emission spectrum

    See Bright-line spectrum

  • Estuary

    A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers

  • Focus (light)

    The point where a lens or mirror causes light rays to converge.

  • Galactic cluster

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

  • Kame

    A steep-sided hill composed of sand and gravel originating when sediment is collected in openings in stagnant glacial ice.

  • 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.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Mass number

    The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Neap tide

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

  • Nebular theory

    The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.

  • Parent material

    The material upon which a soil develops.

  • Star dune

    Isolated hill of sand that exhibits a complex form and develops where wind directions are variable.

  • Terrace

    A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.

  • Tropical rain forest

    A luxuriant broadleaf evergreen forest; also, the name given the climate associated with this vegetation.
