Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air-mass weather

    The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.

  • Arid

    See Desert.

  • Columnar joints

    A pattern of cracks that form during cooling of molten rock to generate columns that are generally six-sided.

  • Daughter product

    An isotope resulting from radioactive decay.

  • Earth science

    The name for all the sciences that collectively seek to understand Earth. It includes geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Epoch

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

  • Geothermal gradient

    The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.

  • 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.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Mercalli intensity scale

    See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.

  • Meteoroid

    Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Period

    A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

  • Phytoplankton

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

  • Scoria cone

    See Cinder cone.

  • Snowline

    Lower limit of perennial snow.

  • Terrae

    The extensively cratered highland areas of the Moon.

  • Upslope fog

    Fog created when air moves up a slope and cools adiabatically.
