Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air-mass weather

    The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.

  • Comet

    A small body that generally revolves about the Sun in an elongated orbit.

  • Continental slope

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

  • Discharge

    The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.

  • Dry climate

    A climate in which yearly precipitation is not as great as the potential loss of water by evaporation.

  • Eruptive variable

    A star that varies in brightness.

  • Focus (light)

    The point where a lens or mirror causes light rays to converge.

  • Ice cap climate

    A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

  • Isotope

    Varieties of the same element that have different mass numbers; their nuclei contain the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons.

  • Jet stream

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

  • Mantle

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

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Mountain breeze

    The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.

  • Ore

    Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.

  • Polar (P) air mass

    A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.

  • Rectangular pattern

    A drainage pattern characterized by numerous right-angle bends that develops on jointed or fractured bedrock.

  • Spicule

    A narrow jet of rising material in the solar chromosphere.

  • Submarine canyon

    A seaward extension of a valley that was cut on the continental shelf during a time when sea level was lower, or a canyon carved into the outer continental shelf, slope, and rise by turbidity currents.

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.

  • Valley train

    A relatively narrow body of stratified drift deposited on a valley floor by meltwater streams that issue from a valley glacier.
