Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aerosols

    Tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere.

  • Albedo

    The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.

  • Aurora

    A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.

  • Cryovolcanism

    A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.

  • Desalination

    The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.

  • Dew-point temperature

    The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.

  • Electromagnetic spectrum

    The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.

  • Esker

    Sinuous ridge composed largely of sand and gravel deposited by a stream flowing in a tunnel beneath a glacier near its terminus.

  • Groin

    A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.

  • Hail

    Nearly spherical ice pellets having concentric layers and formed by the successive freezing of layers of water.

  • Intensity (earthquake)

    A measure of the degree of earthquake shaking at a given locale based on the amount of damage.

  • Intrusive

    Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Porphyritic texture

    An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.

  • Semidiurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.

  • Solar constant

    The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.

  • Spectral class

    A classification of a star according to the characteristics of its spectrum.

  • Sunspot

    A dark spot on the Sun, which is cool by contrast to the surrounding photosphere.

  • Wave of translation

    The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.
