Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anemometer

    An instrument used to determine wind speed.

  • Atomic number

    The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Cirrus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.

  • Climate-feedback mechanism

    Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.

  • Cone of depression

    A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.

  • Fault-block mountain

    A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.

  • Fumarole

    A vent in a volcanic area from which fumes or gases escape.

  • Horizon

    A layer in a soil profile.

  • Ice shelf

    Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.

  • Mercalli intensity scale

    See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.

  • Normal fault

    A fault in which the rock above the fault plane has moved down relative to the rock below.

  • Nuée ardente

    Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.

  • Parasitic cone

    A volcanic cone that forms on the flank of a larger volcano.

  • Pluton

    A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.

  • Relative dating

    Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.

  • Solar flare

    A sudden and tremendous eruption in the solar chromosphere.

  • Trench

    An elongated depression in the seafloor produced by bending of oceanic crust during subduction.

  • Turbulent flow

    The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.

  • Volcanic island arc

    A chain of volcanic islands generally located a few hundred kilometers from a trench where active subduction of one oceanic slab beneath another is occurring.

  • Wave height

    The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.
