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

    Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.

  • Chromatic aberration

    The property of a lens whereby light of different colors is focused at different places.

  • Convection

    The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • Earthquake

    The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.

  • Felsic

    The group of igneous rocks composed primarily of feldspar and quartz.

  • Hygroscopic nuclei

    Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.

  • Mafic

    Igneous rocks with a low silica content and a high iron–magnesium content.

  • Mixing ratio

    The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.

  • Perihelion

    The point in the orbit of a planet where it is closest to the Sun.

  • Photon

    A discrete amount (quantum) of electromagnetic energy.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Rock cycle

    A model that illustrates the origin of the three basic rock types and the interrelatedness of Earth materials and processes.

  • Slide

    A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.

  • Stratified drift

    Sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.

  • Tropical rain forest

    A luxuriant broadleaf evergreen forest; also, the name given the climate associated with this vegetation.

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.

  • Urban heat island

    The fact that temperatures within a city are generally higher than in surrounding rural areas.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.

  • Wavelength

    The horizontal distance separating successive crests or troughs.
