Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Barchanoid dune

    Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.

  • Continental (c) air mass

    An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.

  • Continental slope

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

  • Geothermal gradient

    The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.

  • Hydrogen fusion

    The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Isotherms

    Lines connecting points of equal temperature.

  • Kuiper belt

    A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.

  • Magnetic time scale

    A scale that shows the ages of magnetic reversals and is based on the polarity of lava flows of various ages.

  • Nonmetallic mineral resource

    Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.

  • Nova

    A star that explosively increases in brightness.

  • Obsidian

    A volcanic glass of felsic composition.

  • Photosynthesis

    The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.

  • Primary pollutants

    Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.

  • Ptolemaic system

    An Earth-centered system of the universe.

  • Rainshadow desert

    A dry area on the lee side of a mountain range. Many middle-latitude deserts are of this type.

  • Terrace

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

  • Trophic level

    A nourishment level in a food chain. Plant and algae producers constitute the lowest level, followed by herbivores and a series of carnivores at progressively higher levels.

  • Wave period

    The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
