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

    The weight of water vapor in a given volume of air (usually expressed in GRAMS/M3).

  • Alluvium

    Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.

  • Backswamp

    A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.

  • Calving

    Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.

  • Continuous spectrum

    An uninterrupted band of light emitted by an incandescent solid, liquid, or gas under pressure.

  • Cosmology

    The study of the universe.

  • Dark matter

    Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.

  • Degenerate matter

    Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.

  • Dip-slip fault

    A fault in which the movement is parallel to the dip of the fault.

  • Eye wall

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

  • Hogback

    A narrow, sharp-crested ridge formed by the upturned edge of a steeply dipping bed of resistant rock.

  • Hygroscopic nuclei

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

  • Longitudinal (seif dunes)

    Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.

  • Luster

    The appearance or quality of light reflected from the surface of a mineral.

  • Middle-latitude cyclone

    Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.

  • 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.

  • Talus

    An accumulation of rock debris at the base of a cliff.

  • Temporary (local) base level

    The level of a lake, resistant rock layer, or any other base level that stands above sea level.

  • Tornado

    A small, very intense cyclonic storm with exceedingly high winds, most often produced along cold fronts in conjunction with severe thunderstorms.

  • Wave period

    The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
