Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arid

    See Desert.

  • Bowen’s reaction series

    A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.

  • Continental (c) air mass

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

  • Flood current

    The tidal current associated with the increase in the height of the tide.

  • Groundwater

    Water in the zone of saturation.

  • Heliocentric

    The view that the Sun is at the center of the solar system.

  • Jet stream

    Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.

  • Laccolith

    A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.

  • Longshore current

    A nearshore current that flows parallel to the shore.

  • Low cloud

    A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.

  • Mantle

    The 2,900-kilometer- (1,800-mile-) thick layer of Earth located below the crust.

  • Mercalli intensity scale

    See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.

  • Polar high

    Anticyclones that are assumed to occupy the inner polar regions and are believed to be thermally induced, at least in part.

  • Prevailing wind

    A wind that consistently blows from one direction more than from another.

  • Pulsating variable

    A variable star that pulsates in size and luminosity.

  • Regolith

    The layer of rock and mineral fragments that nearly everywhere covers Earth’s surface.

  • Scattering

    The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.

  • Soil taxonomy

    A soil classification system consisting of six hierarchical categories based on observable soil characteristics. The system recognizes 12 soil orders.

  • Stationary front

    A situation in which the surface position of a front does not move; the flow on either side of such a boundary is nearly parallel to the position of the front.

  • Tidal delta

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