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

    The apparent brightness of a star if it were viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs (32.6 light-years). Used to compare the true brightness of stars.

  • Annual mean temperature

    An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.

  • Axial precession

    A slow motion of Earth’s axis that traces out a cone over a period of 26,000 years.

  • Curie point

    The temperature above which a material loses its magnetization.

  • Dark nebula

    A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.

  • Deposition

    The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.

  • Drumlin

    A streamlined asymmetrical hill composed of glacial till. The steep side of the hill faces the direction from which the ice advanced.

  • Elliptical galaxy

    A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.

  • Eye

    A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.

  • Gradient

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

  • Horizon

    A layer in a soil profile.

  • Model

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

  • Nearshore zone

    The zone of beach that extends from the low-tide shoreline seaward to where waves break at low tide.

  • Photosynthesis

    The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.

  • Primary productivity

    The amount of organic matter synthesized by organisms from inorganic substances through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis within a given volume of water or habitat in a unit of time.

  • Radiation fog

    Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.

  • Sidereal month

    A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.

  • Soil texture

    The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.

  • Strata

    Parallel layers of sedimentary rock.

  • Trellis pattern

    A system of streams in which nearly parallel tributaries occupy valleys cut in folded strata.
