Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alpine glacier

    A glacier confined to a mountain valley, which in most instances had previously been a stream valley.

  • Annual temperature range

    The difference between the highest and lowest monthly temperature means.

  • Beach

    An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.

  • Cirrus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.

  • Conformable

    Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.

  • Decompression melting

    Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.

  • Index fossil

    A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.

  • Isotherms

    Lines connecting points of equal temperature.

  • Maritime (m) air mass

    An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.

  • Melting

    The change of state from a solid to a liquid.

  • Mesocyclone

    An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.

  • Monthly mean temperature

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

  • Outwash plain

    A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.

  • Playa lake

    A temporary lake in a playa.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Saltation

    Transportation of sediment through a series of leaps or bounces.

  • Silicon-oxygen tetrahedron

    A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.

  • Source region

    The area where an air mass acquires its characteristic properties of temperature and moisture.

  • Thrust fault

    A low-angle reverse fault.

  • Tidal delta

    A deltalike feature created when a rapidly moving tidal current emerges from a narrow inlet and slows, depositing its load of sediment.
