Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Archean eon

    The second eon of Precambrian time, following the Hadean and preceding the Proterozoic. It extends between 3.8 billion and 2.5 billion years before the present.

  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Chemical weathering

    The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.

  • Continental rise

    The gently sloping surface at the base of the continental slope.

  • Dry climate

    A climate in which yearly precipitation is not as great as the potential loss of water by evaporation.

  • Earthflow

    The downslope movement of watersaturated, clay-rich sediment. Most characteristic of humid regions.

  • Eccentricity

    The variation of an ellipse from a circle.

  • Glacial trough

    A mountain valley that has been widened, deepened, and straightened by a glacier.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Hot spring

    A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.

  • Humidity

    A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.

  • Solar constant

    The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.

  • Solar winds

    Subatomic particles ejected at high speed from the solar corona.

  • Spit

    An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.

  • Stratified drift

    Sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.

  • Sublimation

    The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.

  • Sun are striking either the

    Tropic of Cancer or the Tropic of Capricorn. Solstice represents the longest or shortest day (length of daylight) of the year.

  • Transpiration

    The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.

  • Volcano

    A mountain formed of lava and/or pyroclastics.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
