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

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

  • Barrier island

    A low, elongate ridge of sand that parallels the coast.

  • Cone of depression

    A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.

  • Cup anemometer

    See Anemometer.

  • End moraine

    A ridge of till marking a former position of the front of a glacier.

  • Euphotic zone

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

  • Freezing nuclei

    Solid particles that serve as cores for the formation of ice crystals.

  • Gravitational collapse

    The gradual subsidence of mountains caused by lateral spreading of weak material located deep within these structures.

  • Horn

    A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.

  • Incised meander

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

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Lava

    Magma that reaches Earth’s surface.

  • Marine west coast climate

    A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool

  • Mean solar day

    The average time between two passages of the Sun across the local celestial meridian.

  • Metamorphism

    The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.

  • Monocline

    A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.

  • Prokaryotes

    Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.

  • Stable air

    Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.

  • Summer solstice

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

  • Tectonic plate

    A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.
