Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Beach nourishment

    The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.

  • Diurnal tidal pattern

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

  • Divergent boundary

    A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.

  • Equatorial low

    A belt of low pressure lying near the equator and between the subtropical highs.

  • Euphotic zone

    The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.

  • Hurricane

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

  • Hydrosphere

    The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.

  • Intermediate composition

    The composition of igneous rocks lying between felsic and mafic.

  • Mechanical weathering

    The physical disintegration of rock, resulting in smaller fragments.

  • Open cluster

    A loosely formed group of stars of similar origin.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Phytoplankton

    Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.

  • Porosity

    The volume of open spaces in rock or soil.

  • Precipitation fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Pressure gradient

    The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.

  • Proton

    A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Subarctic climate

    A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.

  • Tidal flat

    A marshy or muddy area that is covered and uncovered by the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Turbidity current

    A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.

  • Volcanic neck

    An isolated, steep-sided, erosional remnant consisting of lava that once occupied the vent of a volcano.
