Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air

    A mixture of many discrete gases, of which nitrogen and oxygen are most abundant, in which varying quantities of tiny solid and liquid particles are suspended.

  • Benthic zone

    The marine life zone that includes any seabottom surface regardless of its distance from shore.

  • Breakwater

    A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.

  • Cenozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale beginning about 65 million years ago following the Mesozoic era.

  • Conditional instability

    Moist air with a lapse rate between the dry and wet adiabatic rates.

  • Cone of depression

    A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.

  • Continental margin

    That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.

  • Cyclone

    A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Evapotranspiration

    The combined effect of evaporation and transpiration.

  • Gradient

    The slope of a stream; generally measured in feet per mile.

  • Hygroscopic nuclei

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

  • Mantle

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

  • Pulsating variable

    A variable star that pulsates in size and luminosity.

  • Refraction

    The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Soil horizon

    A layer of soil that has identifiable characteristics produced by chemical weathering and other soil-forming processes.

  • Stock

    A pluton similar to but smaller than a batholith.

  • Turbulent flow

    The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.

  • Volcanic bomb

    A streamlined pyroclastic fragment ejected from a volcano while molten.

  • Zodiac

    A band along the ecliptic containing the 12 constellations of the zodiac.
