Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absorption spectrum

    A continuous spectrum with dark lines superimposed.

  • Asteroid belt

    The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

  • Bituminous

    The most common form of coal, often called soft, black coal.

  • Bright nebula

    A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.

  • Convergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Elliptical galaxy

    A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.

  • Erosion

    The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.

  • Eye wall

    The doughnut-shaped area of intense cumulonimbus development and very strong winds that surrounds the eye of a hurricane.

  • Half graben

    A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.

  • Heat

    The kinetic energy of random molecular motion.

  • Heliocentric

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

  • Mercury barometer

    A mercury-filled glass tube in which the height of the mercury column is a measure of air pressure.

  • Nebula

    A cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust.

  • Overrunning

    Warm air gliding up a retreating cold air mass.

  • Phytoplankton

    Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.

  • Rectangular pattern

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

  • Rock flour

    Ground-up rock produced by the grinding effect of a glacier.

  • System

    Any size group of interacting parts that form a complex whole.

  • Transpiration

    The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.

  • Yazoo tributary

    A tributary that flows parallel to the main stream because a natural levee is present.
