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.

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.

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.
