Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Astronomy

    The scientific study of the universe; it includes the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies and phenomena.

  • Atom

    The smallest particle that exists as an element.

  • Barred spiral galaxy

    A galaxy having straight arms extending from its nucleus.

  • Barrier island

    A low, elongate ridge of sand that parallels the coast.

  • Base level

    The level below which a stream cannot erode.

  • Beach nourishment

    The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.

  • Cold front

    A front along which a cold air mass thrusts beneath a warmer air mass.

  • Geyser

    A fountain of hot water ejected periodically.

  • Intertidal zone

    The area where land and sea meet and overlap; the zone between high and low tides.

  • Kuiper belt

    A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.

  • Meteor shower

    Many meteors appearing in the sky caused when Earth intercepts a swarm of meteoritic particles.

  • Mixing depth

    The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Playa lake

    A temporary lake in a playa.

  • 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.

  • Ray (lunar)

    Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.

  • Spiral galaxy

    A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.

  • Stalactite

    The icicle-like structure that hangs from the ceiling of a cavern.

  • Variable stars

    Red giants that overshoot equilibrium, then alternately expand and contract.
