Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aneroid barometer

    An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.

  • Annual mean temperature

    An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.

  • Doppler radar

    In addition to the tasks performed by conventional radar, this new generation of weather radar can detect motion directly and hence greatly improve tornado and severe storm warnings.

  • Emergent coast

    A coast where land that was formerly below sea level has been exposed either because of crustal uplift or a drop in sea level or both.

  • Epoch

    A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.

  • Humid continental climate

    A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.

  • La Niña

    An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.

  • Lightning

    A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.

  • Metamorphic rock

    Rocks formed by the alteration of preexisting rock deep within Earth (but still in the solid state) by heat, pressure, and/or chemically active fluids.

  • Occultation

    An eclipse of a star or planet by the Moon or a planet.

  • Planetary nebula

    A shell of incandescent gas expanding from a star.

  • Pluvial lake

    A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.

  • Prevailing wind

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

  • Shield

    A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.

  • Stellar parallax

    A measure of stellar distance.

  • Stratopause

    The boundary between the stratosphere and the mesosphere.

  • Supercontinent cycle

    The idea that the rifting and dispersal of one supercontinent is followed by a long period during which the fragments gradually reassemble into a new supercontinent.

  • Thermocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change in temperature in the vertical dimension.

  • Water table

    The upper level of the saturated zone of groundwater.

  • Weathering

    The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
